Casey's sidekick

One of the enjoyable radio detective series was Casey, Crime Photographer. It starred Staats Cottsworth as Casey, with Jan Miner as his sidekick, reporter Ann Williams. There are always romantic overtones between them, but their relationship is not overtly stated in any of the episodes I have heard.

Ann was played by actress Jan Miner, who also portrayed Boston Blackie's girlfriend, Mary Wesley. However, she became most famous to my generation as Madge, the manicurist in the Palmolive dish washing detergent ads.
