FIRST DETECTIVE STORY ON THIS DAY IN 1841

Edgar Allan Poe’s story, "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," first
appeared in Graham’s Lady’s and Gentleman’s Magazine. The
tale is generally considered to be the first detective story.

The story describes the extraordinary “analytical power” used
by Monsieur C. Auguste Dupin to solve a series of murders in
Paris. Like the later Sherlock Holmes stories, the tale is narrated
by the detective’s roommate.

Following the publication of Poe’s story, detective stories began
to grow into novels and English novelist Wilkie Collins published
a detective novel, The Moonstone, in 1868.

IT WAS A MONITOR WEEKEND ON NBC RADIO

See the source image

 

Monitor was a weekend radio program broadcast from June 12,
1955 until January 26, 1975. Airing live and nationwide on the
NBC Radio Network, it originally aired beginning Saturday
morning at 8am and continuing through the weekend until 12
midnight on Sunday. However, after the first few months, the
full weekend broadcast was shortened when the midnight-to-
dawn hours were dropped since few NBC stations carried it.

The program offered a magazine-of-the-air mix of news, sports,
comedy, variety, music, celebrity interviews and other short
segments (along with records, usually of popular middle-of-the-
road songs, especially in its later years). Its length and eclectic
format were radical departures from the traditional radio shows.

The show was the brainchild of legendary NBC radio and
television network president
Sylvester (Pat) Weaver

On January 25 and 26, 1975, Monitor spent its last 12 hours
looking back on its 20-year history of more than 20,000-plus
hours with hosts Big Wilson and John Bartholomew Tucker.

Many clips were played, including Dave Garroway’s interview
with Marilyn Monroe on the show’s first day, Frank McGee’s
talk with Martin Luther King Jr. in the early 1960s, Bob and
Ray spoofing “Miss Monitor” and reporter Helen Hall riding
on a roller-coaster. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
