Description by OLDIES.com:

Shady, womanizing millionaire Caesar Kluck is mysteriously murdered during a live broadcast of the radio show he sponsors. Everyone is suspect, including the gorgeous copywriter, "Steenie" MacCorkle. But there's another possibility: a gangster who paid a threatening visit to Kluck minutes before he was found dead. Fearing a scandal, the owner of the broadcasting company orders a cover-up. Determined to find the truth, radio engineer Benjamin Butts discovers that someone had tampered with the ventilation system and discharged a lethal gas. Together with Steenie, the two amateur sleuths set out to unravel the murder. While the list of possible suspects grows, the trio has no way of knowing that they are targeted as the next victims.

Taken from the novel "Death Catches Up With Mr. Kluck" by Xantippe, Danger In The Air is the fourth entry in Universal's "Crime Club" series. It stars Nan Grey, who appeared with Vincent Price in The Invisible Man Returns (1940) and The House of Seven Gables (1940). Leading man Donald Woods appeared in over 75 films, including Sweet Adeline (1934), A Tale of Two Cities (1935) and The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms (1953). He also worked extensively in many television shows from the 1950s to the 1980s, mostly as a guest star but also starring in several series, such as "Craig Kennedy, Criminologist" (1952) and "Tammy" (1965-1968).

Radio station based crime thriller Movie Lover: from WORTHINGTON, OH US -- October, 12, 2011

This one moves along fast and furious. A good script will keep you guessing until the end. There are many characters you will enjoy getting to know. The elevator operator who does impressions in not the least of them. Recognized star Donald Woods from the original "13 Ghosts" movie and his way of delivering dialogue did not change. You could do a lot worse than this little gem.
