Blackstone Detective

Blackstone is played by the veteran radio actor Ed Jerome. The episodes have been written mostly by Walter Gibson and some by Nancy Webb. Each week Blackstone will solve a variety of mysteries with magic. Along with his main assistant, the beautiful Rhoda Brent (voiced by Fran Carlon) and their radio announcers Alan Kent and Don Hancock we get to hear thrilling inside stories about the mementos Blackstone has collected when solving fantastic crimes or the magic apparatus Blackstone has used to solve them. Then, Blackstone lets us in on the magic we can do at home and “reveal the guarded secrets of the world’s greatest living magician!”

At one time, there were as many as 78 episodes. However, about two dozen have been lost over the years. This represents the most complete collection known to exist, minus the so-called Shark Island Story, which is sometimes represented as an episode from an unknown date. It is actually The Voodoo Treasure.
