This was drama with a difference. Columbia Workshop was not everybody’s cup of tea and in terms of audience popularity it was always noted that it was never a strong contender for the title “Radios Top Rated Drama Series” and yet it was always considered to be the drama program that led the way in radio standards.

The radio show Crime Does Not Pay is a perfect example of how radio shows often mirrored major studio productions. This radio show was based on the film series Crime Does Not Pay produced by Metro Goldwyn Mayer. The films began in 1935 yet weren’t mirrored by the radio show until 14 years later. During the same general time period, a comic book by the same name was popular with readers. During the late 40s and early 50s crime dramas were very popular – much like they are today.
