Let George Do It  featured Bob Bailey (who later voiced Johnny Dollar) as G.I.-turned-P.I. George Valentine.  What began as a sitcom, complete with live laugh-it-up studio audiences, quickly transitioned into one of the most popular detective shows of the era.  George's backstory as an ex-soldier and 'everyman' returning to civilian life struck a chord with audiences immediately following WWII, prompting a highly successful run of the half-hour episodes from 1946 through 1954.

The show was buoyed equally by (1) brilliant script-writing and (2) one of the most beloved 'sidekicks' in radio history, the street-wise yet charming Claire "Brooksie" Brooks, played by Frances Robinson (pictured at left with Bailey).
