Ford Theater Old Time Radio Program

1/2 hour or 1 hour drama episodes


Ford Theater as a radio dramatic anthology series lasted for only two seasons. It was a better known (and more popular) television show called Ford Television Theatre. At various times the television series appeared on all three major television networks, while the radio version was broadcast on two separate networks and on two separate coasts. Ford Theatre was named for its sponsor, the Ford Motor Company, which had an earlier success with its concert music series, The Ford Sunday Evening Hour (1934–42).Our CD/Download contain both episodes of Ford Theater (hour long dramas) and a different Ford half hour music variety show.

The first season of the radio show was broadcast from New York City on NBC with such actors as Ed Begley, Shirley Booth, Gary Merrill, Everett Sloane and Vicki Vola. This season ran from October 5, 1947 to June 27, 1948. Due to poor ratings, Ford moved the show to Hollywood and CBS for the second season, where top Hollywood actors headed the casts. This season, which lasted from October 8, 1948 to July 1, 1949, received much higher ratings. However, with television rising in popularity, Ford decided to end its radio show and focus solely on television.
