"Dick Tracy in B-Flat" with Bob Hope;
Knight's "Death Blew Out the Match."

Bob Hope, NYPL
This month's highlights on the Radio Hall of Fame Web site include "Dick Tracy in B-Flat," the 1945 Command Performance spoof of the comic strip detective, which starred Bob Hope as Flat-top, Bing Crosby as Dick Tracy, Frank Sinatra, and others; and the 1946 "Death Blew Out the Match" from Crime Club (writ. Kathleen Moore Knight, 1935, about a playwright's murder on Cape Cod). It appears Windows Media Player is needed to play these programs (alternate site for "Dick Tracy in B Flat" here; alternate site for "Death Blew Out the Match" here).
