CANDY MATSON & DUFFY'S TAVERN
“Candy Matson” was one of the few solo female private eyes of radio’s Golden Age. Based in San Francisco, she may look like a pinup and have the most sultry voice on the airwaves, but she’s smart, tough, and fast-talking. In this episode a Hollywood movie company is filming near her apartment, and it’s not long before a corpse turns up. Then it’s time to visit “Duffy’s Tavern.” It may not be the place where everybody knows your name, but close enough. Manager / bartender Archie falls for a get-rich-quick scheme to patent electricity. It’s a little-known fact (so to speak) that Benjamin Franklin meant to, but accidentally patented the kite instead.
