The Whistler was a mystery/suspense radio show, the main star of which was the ironic twist at the end of almost every episode. Usually a criminal's activity was exposed either by an overlooked (vital) detail or by their own stupidity. The Whistler himself narrated, often commenting directly upon the action, taunting the criminal from an omniscient perspective.

Each dramatic episode began with the whistling of a haunting tune which was composed by Wilbur Hatch and featured Dorothy Roberts whistling with an orchestra.
