The Lineup

Based on Otter Log dated Nov 21, 2008

Notes: This series was listed in radio schedules under multiple titles:
The Lineup,
The Line-Up,
Lineup,
Line-Up, however, the correct title for the series is The Lineup.

The episode numbers & titles listed herein are derived from pages 217-219 in the book:

      Radio Series Scripts, 1930-2001
      A Catalog of the American Radio Archives Collection
      Compiled by Jeanette M. Berard and Klaudia Englund 
      ISBN 978-0-7864-2469-6 
      photos, bibliography, indexes
      431pp. softcover (7 x 10) 2006
      McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers
      Price: $95.00." (bk)

The first 12 episodes were UNTITLED. There are very few episode titles or synopses listed in the newspaper radio schedules. Many, many different titles were found on shared episodes for these shows.

The episode titles staring with episode # 13, as listed in the book, are some of the strangest (may I say 'weirdest') titles I've ever seen in any series. (bk)
