Well, as I said awhile ago, Suspense and Johnny Dollar were gone by 
1963.  But the last remaining radio dramas were on CBS radio fairly 
early on Sunday evening, I think around 5:00 or 6:00 or so.  At one time 
there were four shows: Gunsmoke, Have Gun, Will Travel, Suspense, and 
Johnny Dollar.  At one time I read that Johnny Dollar was the last of 
them because it was the last show in that block when they all went off.  
But I've also read that at least some of the others, maybe all, had 
already gone off earlier when Johnny Dollar left the air.
