Mr. and Mrs. North featured publisher Jerry North and wife Pam as an amateur sleuthing couple who were able to solve mysteries which baffled police and other experts.  Based on a series of books by Richard Lockridge, the show was a hit with fans and critics alike, winning a Best Radio Drama Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America in 1946.  The couple's wise-cracking repartee, even in the face of danger, made the well-paced scripts sparkle and endeared the Norths to millions of listeners.

The half-hour episodes ran on NBC and CBS from 1942 through 1955 with Joseph Curtin and Alice Frost (pictured) in the starring roles, later replaced by Barbara Britton and Richard Denning.
