"Jeff Regan, Investigator” is a Jack Webb series that just predates “Dragnet.” This P.I. has an even drier delivery than Detective Friday, but he’s much more sarcastically verbose. In tonight’s episode, movie cowboys and racehorses get entangled in a big-money scam. Then on “The Jack Benny Program,” Jack goes into Beverly Hills to try to buy a new violin string and ends up getting a parking ticket.

Let’s return to “The Lux Radio Theater” for an adaptation of the brilliant 1944 film noir mystery, “Laura.” You can miss a lot in an audio adaptation of a film noir, but luckily this version features the two main stars and one of the supporting players. Dana Andrews and Gene Tierney return, as does Vincent Price. Otto Kruger Takes over Clifton Webb’s role. Close your eyes and enjoy.
