Barrie Craig, Confidential Investigator was a radio detective drama heard on NBC from October 3, 1951, to June 30, 1955. Detective Barrie Craig worked alone from his Madison Avenue office. Unlike his contemporaries Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe, Craig had a laid-back personality, somewhat cutting against the popular hard-boiled detective stereotype. Others in the cast included Parley Baer and Betty Lou Gerson. More on Wikipedia
