I couldn't pass up this potpourri of radio shamuses when Radio Spirits offered it up at a special sale price. Granted, not every entry is grade-A investigating (I find programs like PHILO VANCE and BOSTON BLACKIE to be tough slogs...and the less said about DANGER WITH GRAINGER the better) but there's enough good, solid detecting from the likes of Pat Novak, Richard Diamond, Johnny Dollar, Mr. Keen, Philip Marlowe, Sherlock Holmes, and Sam Spade to make it a worthwhile purchase.
I am enjoying them and the price was great. I appreciated the sale price
