Arthur Morton Godfrey (August 31, 1903 – March 16, 1983)

Arthur Godfrey was seen for the last time in the final broadcast of “The
Arthur Godfrey Show” on CBS-TV. The hour-long series originally aired
from January 1949 to June 1957 as “Arthur Godfrey and His Friends”.

The variety show was live, and Godfrey often did away with the script
and improvised. He refused to participate in commercials for products
he did not believe in himself.

DOOR CLOSED THE LAST TIME ON THIS DAY IN 1952

Inner-Sanctum-   

InnerSanctum

Inner Sanctum Mysteries, a popular anthology series that aired from Jan. 
7, 1941 to Oct. 5, 1952 (NBC/CBS), was created by producer Himan Brown 
and was based on the generic title given to the mystery novels of Simon 
and Schuster. The anthology series featured stories of mystery, terror 
and suspense, and its tongue-in-cheek introductions were in sharp 
contrast to shows like Suspense and The Whistler. The early programs 
opened with
Raymond Edward Johnson introducing himself as, “your
host, Raymond.” The program’s familiar and famed audio trademark
was the eerie creaking door which opened and closed the broadcast.

The
DuMont Television Network was one of the world’s pioneer
commercial
television networks, rivaling NBC and CBS for the
distinction of being first overall in the United States. It began
operation on August 15, 1946 and aired it’s final telecast on the
6th of August, 1956. The country would be without a fourth major

network until the Fox network was launched in 1986.

Portland’s KPTV channel 27, now channel 12, was an affiliate of
DuMont from September 1953 to September 1955.
