PROJECT AUDION – The Lineup: “The Scared Schoolmarm Scrape”

Premiered Aug 7, 2020

Project Audion’s newest cross-country OTR recreation is an episode of the police drama “The Lineup” which hasn’t been heard since it was originally broadcast in January 1952. The Lineup was added to the CBS radio schedule after Dragnet became a massive hit, and ran for four years on radio, plus six years on television and a 1958 movie.

The lead cop role (which was portrayed in 1952 by Bill Johnstone, who was a former “Shadow” and “Whistler”) is here played by Ed Dennis, an actual law enforcement officer for four decades. He even used his own handcuffs in the show’s final scene.
