Jeff Regan, Investigator is a radio detective drama that ran on CBS from July 10, 1948 to December 18, 1948, and again from October 5, 1949 to August 27, 1950. The series is notable for being one of the earliest nationwide programs to feature Jack Webb. If there is something peculiar about this show, it’s the title. Originally, the show debuted on the 10th of July 1948 with the title Joe Canto, Private Eye. Such debut was made again but with a different title: Jeff Regan, Private Eye. Then finally, the show was listed as Jeff Regan, Investigator. What was more interesting is that, the newspaper eventually listed its name in all ways possible except Jeff Regan, Investigator. It’s often listed as either Regan, Jeff Regan, Jeff Regan Detective etc. and, the most interesting of all, people started referring it to as the Lyon’s/Lion’s Eye to the point that people search the internet with those keywords to look for Jeff Regan, Investigator. This might be attributed to the fact that, everyday, the host of the show opens it with the line: “I get ten a day and expenses…they call me the Lyon’s Eye.”
