Ah, Old-Time Radio. Stan Freberg called it "The Theatre of the Mind," and he's so right. It amazes me how quickly I can get sucked into a good production with snappy patter and well-placed sound effects. Freberg's point was, you can do things on radio that would never work in the movies or on TV. And it's true.
Here's three hours' worth of Golden-Age mysteries. The Sherlock Holmes story isn't Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce, but their successors instead, but hey, they were honest about it right on the artwork, and that's more than most companies would do. Also, there are many good moments for sampling here; I've already found a few moments I have to go back and cut out for my own use...otherwise, I won't ramble on here--the artwork says it all, and it's all very enjoyable, so enjoy!Radio's Greatest Detectives
