Gang Busters was a dramatic radio program heralded as "the only national
program that brings you authentic police case histories." It premiered on
NBC as G-Men, sponsored by Chevrolet, on July 20, 1935. After the title
was changed to Gang Busters January 15, 1936, the show had a 21-year
run through November 20, 1957. 

The  writers worked with the FBI so that they could use case files as script
material. All scripts based directly from actual police records and had to
be approved by the Bureau first. The show was created by Phillips H. Lord
(above) who was a script writer, radio voice actor and screen performer.
