With Hugh Marlowe in the title role, The Adventures of Ellery Queen was a mystery detective series that began as a summer replacement for the Screen Guild Theater on CBS radio June 18, 1939. On October 8, 1939 during the broadcast of an episode, station WBBM in Chicago went off the air with only 9 minutes left in the show. The number of listeners that called in to complain shocked CBS executives. They didn't have a clue that the series was that popular. As a result, The Adventures of Ellery Queen became a hit and remained on the air through 1948.

Fun Fact: Producer/Director George Zachary jealously guarded the script endings from leaking out to the public. Even the actors never found out how an episode would end until the final dress rehearsal!

During the 1970s, syndicated radio fillers, Ellery Queen's Minute Mysteries, began with an announcer saying, "This is Ellery Queen..." and then outlining a case in one minute. The radio station encouraged callers to solve the mystery and win a sponsor's prize. Once they had a winner, the solution part of the spot would be played as confirmation.
