Drama/Anthology Radio Programs - Mr. Keen, Tracer of Lost Persons
Starring Bennett Kilpack
Mr. Keen, tracer of lost persons was one of the longest running radio programs of all times, beginning in 1937 and not ending until 1955. The show began as a fifteen minute program but was later expanded to a half hour. The show also changed from specializing in searching for lost persons into a general murder mystery show. Mr. Keen's assistant, a character named Mike Clancy, was the weak-minded muscle who complimented Mr. Keen's sharp investigative mind. Surprisingly, for such a long lasting program very few episodes survive.
