MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING OLD TIME RADIO SHOWS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. HE LISTENS TO THEM WHILE HE IS WORKING IN THE DARKROOM.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE THEM WITH OTHERS SO THEY COULD ENJOY THEM ALSO.
Pat Novak: For Hire (1946-47) written by Dick Breen who also wrote the scripts for the Jack Webb Show. It Jack Webb's first significant radio crime drama. It was also the vanguard of radio hard-edge, hard-boiled as to be high camp in its own time. The show was rich with hilarious pessimism, rippling with ridiculous metaphors. "The street was as deserted as a warm bottle of beer," Novak would say. "The car started up down the street and the old man couldn't have made it with a pocketful of aces. I caught a glimpse of the license plate in a dull, surprised way, the way you grab a feather out of an angel's wing." * Please note after spring 1949, Ben Morris took over the roll of "Pat Novak".
Jeff Regan, Investigator (1948-1950) followed Pat Novak: For Hire and by this time, Jack Webb had almost a cult following, and Regan was the transition show away from Novak and into Dragnet. It lacked the originality and flavor of Novak and also the humor. * Please note the last 5 episodes (in 1949), Jack Webb was replaced by Frank Graham who played the part of Regan.
Pete Kelley Blues (1951) arrived on radio almost two years after Jack Webb reached stardom in Dragnet. All the Webb trademarks were here: the quips, the snappy comebacks, the short-tempered realism. Much of the show's appeal was in the music: Webb was a lifelong fan of hot jazz. This is one of Webb's best shows and the basis of his 1955 film of the same name.
