The Falcon radio series premiered on the Blue Network on April 10, 1943, continuing on NBC and Mutual until
November 27, 1954. Some 70 episodes were produced. Like the Falcon film series, 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. Speaking with a woman whose voice
was never heard, Waring would explain that he had an urgent situation in which he had to deal with criminals. This led into the standard
opening, followed by the week's tale of adventure. Often, incompetent police were unable to solve the mysteries without his help.
