Dear Margie, It Was Murder

This was a show that ran in the early '50's. Each half hour featured the narrator reading a letter he had written to his girlfriend. Marlowe-like he'd itemize the situation followed by his signature statement, Dear Margie It Was Murder ... and the drama began. Does anyone else remember the program? I have no idea if it were of network or syndication.

Thanks for the info. I'm shocked at myself for not making the Mason Adams connection as I remembered the timbre of the hero's voice. Anyway, DMIM and The Shadow were my faves ack then for Sunday afternoon listening. (Isn't it amusing what will catch a child's fantasy?) My very favorite detective show was Mr. & Mrs. North (Halo, everybody, Halo) with Joseph Curtin and Alice Frost.
