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 episode began with a haunting tune
composed by Wilbur Hatch and whistled by Dorothy Roberts.
