Publisher's Summary

The Golden Age of Radio had incredible detective shows that kept Americans glued to their radio sets. Families gathered around their living room radios to hear their favorite Hollywood stars voicing fiction’s most famous gumshoes. This collection includes Humphrey Bogart as Sam Spade searching for the Black Bird in The Maltese Falcon in a radio adaptation that co-starred the original film cast of Mary Astor, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre. You’ll hear Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce as Holmes and Watson on The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Jack Webb as Los Angeles Sgt. Joe Friday on Dragnet and as San Francisco private eye Pat Novak on Pat Novak, for Hire. Tune in to Dick Kollmar starring as 'enemy to those who make him an enemy, friend to those who have no friend' on Boston Blackie, Dick Powell as hard-boiled gumshoe Richard Rogue on Rogue’s Gallery. Listen as William Gargan voices suave Barrie Craig, Confidential Investigator, John Lund fills out another expense account on Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar and many more!
