(5 stars; 7 reviews)

Counterspy was an espionage drama radio series that aired on the NBC Blue Network (later the ABC) and Mutual from May 18, 1942 to November 29, 1957. David Harding (Don MacLaughlin) was the chief of the United States Counterspies, a unit engaged during World War II in counterespionage against Japan's Black Dragon and Germany's Gestapo. With spies still lurking in the post-war years, as well as the Communist threat, the adventures continued apace well after World War II ended. Scriptwriters for the series included Milton J. Kramer, Emile C. Tepperman and Stanley Niss. Times Past

Don McLaughlin Excellent as David Harding Counterspy

(5 stars)

These are excellent programs with the David Harding character (Don McLaughlin) battling different enemies through the years on behalf of the safety of the citizens in the USA. Good scripts and acting. It is good to hear them again.

Definitely agree with Porterville

(5 stars)

No doubt an excellent Espionage program. Theres no wonder why this show lasted well after the demise of Radio being the Popular source for entertainment (it ended in 1957)

Excellent show for sure!

(5 stars)

A 'sleeper' or a 'darkhorse' show for sure! Thank you!
