    I have been enjoying the Whistler on various OTR posts, when I came across yours. When I heard it some fifty years ago, it was on Sunday nights about 8:30 p.m. Although it was a CBS mainstay through the years, it was heard on different nights. Even John Dunning’s Encyclopedia of Radio could not pin down the exact night and times through the years. The one I am hearing now “The Alibi” was heard on Sunday nights.
