Candy Matson was a radio program on NBC West Coast which aired from June 29, 1949, to May 20, 1951.
It centered on Candy Matson, a female private investigator with a wry sense of humor and a penthouse on Telegraph Hill in San
Francisco. The program was notable for having a strong female character "without a trace of squeamishness" as well as a veiled
gay character in Candy's best friend Rembrandt Watson, voiced by Jack Thomas. Candy's love interest was police detective Ray
Mallard, voiced by Henry Leff. The announcer was Dudley Manlove. Actors frequently heard in minor roles were Helen Kleeb, John
Grober, Mary Milford and Hal Burdick. The series concluded with a twist ending when Ray finally proposed to Candy, who accepted,
and with her getting married she retired from the detective business.
