No crime in the Fifties? Don't tell Joe Friday that! Here's radio's top cop taking on all the vice the postwar decade had to offer in twenty true-life police procedurals starring Jack Webb as Sgt. Joe Friday and Ben Alexander as Det. Frank Smith!
Whether radio's most earnest cops were on robbery detail, or working missing persons, narcotics, or homicide, each story was told in a straightforward manner that never questioned the intelligence of its audience.

I have been a fan of Dragnet (the series, not the movie) and just listening to them is a joy.
Excellent Sound Quality, great stories. The commercials are really amusing. The download was easy to do. I would definitely buy others.
There's a reason why DRAGNET remains the yardstick by which all police procedurals are measured: it still holds up today, and is a testament to the genius of its auteur, Jack Webb. Highly recommended!
