When CBS resurrected Jeff Regan, Investigator in 1949, Frank Graham stepped into Jack Webb’s shoes as the titular gumshoe. The versatile and talented actor created a new Regan – less hard-boiled and cynical. Joining Graham in the new series was Frank Nelson – frequent radio nemesis of Jack Benny – as Anthony J. Lyon, Regan’s penny-pincher of a boss. It was a union of two of radio’s most talented performers and a combination unlike any other detective duo. We’ll hear them in “The Little Man’s Lament,” originally aired on CBS on November 11, 1949.
