The Falcon radio series with Les Damon, which will air on Mondays in August, premiered on the Blue Network April 10, 1943, and continued playing on NBC and Mutual until 1954. Loosely based on the series of popular Falcon movies distributed by RKO, The Falcon was an alternate identity for detective Michael Waring. Like the movies, the radio plots mixed danger, romance, and comedy in equal parts. Each show began with a telephone ringing and Michael Waring, The Falcon, answering the phone.
