Roy Dameron
Created by Jim French

"Dameron - his home the streets of the world; his profession the jobs nobody else can do. Dameron goes anywhere, solves any problem - for a price."

In this 1970's private eye radio drama, which aired on the Golden West Radio Network (owned by radio's singing cowboy, Gene Autry), ROY DAMERON (Robert E. Lee Hardwycke) is a high-priced, international trouble-shooter. Emil (Douglas Young) is his assistant; variously described as a cook, a chemist, and a general factotum.

Most Dameron episodes follow typical detective plots - masquerading as someone else or solving or preventing a crime. In one episode, Dameron must stop the bombing of the Vietnam War Peace Talks in Paris. Dameron uses his wits to solve his cases, he doesn't carry or own a gun.

About five years later, creator (and writer and director) Jim French went on to create the long-running The Adventures of Harry Nile. The star of Dameron, Robert E. Lee Hardwycke, was a radio personality and DJ at KVI - I believe he was the morning man there for much of the 1970's and perhaps into the early 1980's.
