The Adventures of Frank Race was an American radio adventure serial syndicated by Bruce Eells Productions. The 30-minute program's first East Coast broadcast was 1949, and the show ran 43 episodes. Because it was syndicated, it aired on different stations on different days. For instance, in New York City, the first episode ran on WINS on April 9, 1949. The series was broadcast on the West Coast from 1951-52.
Each episode opened with a one-minute organ theme and then the following from announcer Art Gilmore:
Many things were changed during the war; the face of the earth was altered and the people of the Earth changed. Before the war, Frank Race was an attorney, but he traded his law books for the cloak-and-dagger of the OSS. When it was over, his former life was over, too... adventure had become his business!
Frank Race mainly investigated international insurance scams around the globe in various exotic locations, making him something of a cross between James Bond and Johnny Dollar. After Tom Collins played the title role for the first 22 episodes, Paul Dubov took over the lead role. Tony Barnett portrayed Race's sidekick, Mark Donovan. Other actors included Jack Kruschen, Wilms Herbert, Lillian Buyeff and Harry Lang.
The series was written and directed by Joel Murcott and Buckley Angel. Ivan Ditmars provided the background organ music.

Paul Dubov and Tony Barrett, in particular, forged a relationship during The Adventures of Frank Race that continued throughout both great character actors' careers when the two began prolific careers as writers and developers of Television features together and separately. Indeed, their writing and developing credits in Television eventually eclipsed both great actors' body of work in Radio. Tom Collins, having recently completed his leading role as Chandu in the 1948 run of Chandu The Magician, returned to One Man's Family after The Adventures of Frank Race and almost got a bid to portray his Nick Lacey character from One Man's Family for the Television version of the series in 1949. Never quite attaining the heights of either Tony Barrett or Paul Dubov, Tom Collins' staunchest fans remember him for his roles as Reggie Yorke in I Love Adventure, Chandu in Chandu the Magician, and Frank Race in The Adventures of Frank Race with equal zeal.
