"I don't like 'The Shadow' and I don't care to listen in '88 to 'The Lone Ranger,' " groused Himan Brown. "Yes, I was involved with other shows of that vintage, but then I grew up. As you grow older, your tastes change." The creator of such '40s radio classics as "Inner Sanctum Mysteries" and "The Adventures of the Thin Man" is back in production at age 70 . . . but not with the "gee whilikers" brand of drama he once put on the old Philco.
