An Interesting Beaker Street Question

Jim Lister sent me an e-mail this morning:

"Do you have any info about a radio drama - possibly BBC Sherlock Holmes drama - with a cameo appearance by Clyde Clifford. If I remember correctly - somebody knocked on the door to 221b Baker Street and it opened to Clyde doing an Beaker Street Air Check - and someone said Baker Street not Beaker Street..."

I have sent Clyde an inquiry about this. An interesting question, to be sure. Anybody have any idea about this, please?

  1. It's certainly a possibility. "Beaker Theatre" followed the Beaker Street program, airing from 2:00 until 2:30 a.m. Old radio dramas were broadcast in that time slot. This was the brainchild of George J. Jennings, although I believe some original dramas were recorded and aired as well. It's an interesting question, but I don't have a definitive answer right now. Maybe Clyde can shed some light on this.
