Set 3: the old radio show portion of the evening. (Listen to this set: )
Pat Novak, For Hire  Rita Malloy   Options from April 23, 1949  (none)  Pat Novak is the series that made Jack Webb into a cult figure, and which resulted in his getting the nod to be Sergeant Friday on Dragnet.

People loved the excessively snappy dialog, and the occasional head-scratchingly bizarre metaphors. Some samples from "Rita Malloy":

"...he looked like a well groomed laundry bag."

"He's a single celled animal, and this is just about big enough to fit into his brain."

"Things were falling into place like a fixed roulette wheel."

"You couldn't find a hangnail if you knew which hand it was on."

"When she opened the door, I got a nice warm feeling like a melted cheese sandwich, and I was looking around for a rope to hang on."
