One of the most terrific, yet underappreciated series on radio!
Cloak and Dagger debuted in May 1950 on NBC, and featured fully authenticated case histories of Allied espionage during World War II.
One newspaper quoted "The stories dramatized each week are true, and yet as fantastic as any fiction writer might be able to dream up. In all, Clock and Dagger is an innovation in radio entertainment, because now for the first time in radio's history, an important and secretive phase of wartime operations is revealed through tense and hard-hitting drama."
Cloak and Dagger was a half hour of outstanding "whodunit" excitement, with great production values, real drama and suspense, and was based on actual events. It's a shame it came along later in the game and wasn't given more of a chance.
Why not give it a whirl and see if you enjoy the series? All 22 episodes are available on RUSC. I'd love to hear what you think!
Happy listening my friends,
