The Whistler ran from 1942-55 in the states. Sometimes nationally, sometimes only in the Western states. There were movies, books. It was big. AFRTS had it many times well into the 80s. In the 1981 run it had apparently been picked up by a syndicator.
This appears to be an early 60s reissue of a 1946 show. The lawyer for the biggest crook in town finds himself the only witness that can convict his client. The story has a surprising and uncharacteristic finale.
