Mandeville, LA – Vincent Price stars as Simon Templar, AKA “The Saint” was not a Saint…in fact, the name was the underworld’s sobriquet for this radio detective, who often did a little bad to get the “goods” on his criminal of choice. “The Saint” is a bon vivant who savors detection as an art form. He’s nothing like his American hard-boiled detectives-in-arms such as Sam Spade, Boston Blackie and Phillip Marlowe, although closer in spirit is The Fat Man, and closer still, Nero Wolfe. (h/t Old Time Radio site and archive)
Simon Templar was called “The Saint” because of his initials: “S.T.”
The Saint’s crime fighting is sophisticated. He’s usually sharp enough to stick to slinging witty words like arrows, since he’s the “Robin Hood of Modern Crime”, but sometimes thugs want their slugs. Lawrence Dobkin is “Louie,” the (Brooklyn) Cab Driver, who keeps The Saint streetwise while getting him across town. A congenial cast of characters is always on hand, or fist, thanks to the witty scripts. Orchestral music adds to the enjoyment, too, but it’s Mr. Vincent Pricethat gives The Saint a halo.

For over 13 years, I was the host of my own radio talk show broadcast nationally over the Sirius/XM satellite radio service. It was called the Mike Church Show and it was a call-in political, current events talk show. It was hosted on the Patriot channel and my show remains the longest running radio talk show in the history of satellite radio. In total I have been performing daily, talk-radio shows since 1992, that's 25 years.
Which brings me to the Veritas Radio Network. I have created a forum for the great thinkers of our time, those who accept the REALITY that Truth is higher than opinion and are willing to speak it with clarity, courage and charity. We intend to seek the Truth, every broadcast hour of every day and bring it to you as best as we are able in this fallen world.
We hope that you will listen…for the Truth will set you free.
