Stand By For Crime featured Glenn Langan (pictured) playing news anchor Chuck Morgan, whose position at radio station KOP in Los Angeles allowed access to hot news tips from police Lt. Bill Miggs.  Never one to shy away from a scoop, Morgan's ensuing investigations always landed him in the middle of the action, where he eventually would solve whatever mysteries presented themselves along the way.

Although not a household name even in his day, Langan's warm noir-type narration lent itself nicely to the well-balanced scripts, and his natural chemistry with real-life wife Adele Jurgens (as 'Gal Friday' Carol Curtis) made the show popular with listeners.  He eventually earned a measure of cult star status as the 60-foot hero of the classic sci-fi movie The Amazing Colossal Man.
