Jake the Elevator Man

One of the enjoyable regulars on the Barry Craig radio detective program was Jake. He was the elevator operator in the office building where Craig worked. He had moved to New York because it was hard to farm on the rocky hillsides in Vermont and because the girls were prettier in NY. Jake was played by Parley Baer. In at least one episode, he was more than a bit part, and stayed with Craig throughout the entire adventure, adding humor to an otherwise dreary setting.

Parely Baer sounds familiar. Where else would I know him


He was Chester on the Gunsmoke radio show.
