Jeff Ragen

The show that featured Jeff Ragen was not nearly as good as Joe Friday. Please keep Joe Friday on still.

Great compendium of classic radio detective noir

This is a great daily feed of a variety of detectives from the golden age of radio. The shows are NOT all equal, and I certainly have my preferences. They are run in series, so that you’ll tune in to the full run of a particular program. Listening for years, I actually see evolution of some of the programs.

Adam’s commentary is quirky, and sometimes too literal. But it will keep your attention no doubt!

A thankless endeavor

Thank you for doing this Adam!! Your effort in putting this together allows other 20 somethings like me invaluable access to this gold mine of suspense, mystery, and adventure! Story writing hasn’t been the same since!
