Rocky Jordan was a 1948 CBS radio program sponsored by Del Monte Foods. It focused on the story of Rocky Jordan, a banished American detective who owns a restaurant in Cairo, Egypt. There, he continued to fight thieves, scoundrels, murderers, ex-Nazis, scallywags, and countless beautiful ladies who always put him into trouble. Jack Moyle was the first one to take the role of Rocky Jordan, but when the show returned from its 9-month break, George Raft became the new lead star. Rocky Jordan was always compared to another program called A Man Named Jordan due of some similarities; however, the setting of the former was in Cairo while the latter was in Istanbul. The show was held its goodbye in September 10, 1950.
