  • "New "Old Time" Radio"

    Story

    Thanks to Jim French for keeping radio drama alive. The Harry Nile series was broadcast on a local radio station for many years and I was a regular listener. When the show disappeared from radio, I found the Harry Nile web site and ordered the shows on CD. I was delighted to find the series available on Audible.

    Harry Nile is a former police officer who now works as a private detective. He is aided by Murphy, a former librarian who has become his assistant. These stories take place before the Internet age, when a librarian had the know how to find information - it just took longer.

    Harry Nile is smart and ethical. Once in awhile he finds a client who can pay him well. Often, however, his clients are people of modest means who have big problems. Harry has a hard time saying no to these folks.

    These stories are full in interesting historical details about Seattle (where the stories take place). They also remind the listener of how different things were in the early 50's. For instance. in one story Harry flies from Miami to Seattle. There is one flight a week and the trip takes 14 hours!

    Each story is about 20 minutes long. The plots are interesting and the production is excellent.

    If you enjoy listening to the "old time" radio dramas, I believe you will enjoy Harry Nile.

    Story

    A few years ago, the Harry Nile radio drama series was broadcast on a local radio station. I was very disappointed when that station stopped broadcasing the show. I was delighted when I found the series available on CD, and now on Kindle.

    This is a modern version of the type of radio drama that was broadcast in the days before television became popular. I listened to classic radio shows as a child and still enjoy them today.

    Each show is about 20 minutes long. The plots are intriguing and the characters likable.

    Story

    During my early childhood TV was just getting started. I remember listening to my favorite shows on radio. These days radio seems mostly to be music and strdent, opionated talk shows.

    It was a nice surprise to discover the Paul Temple series. It was produced in England and aired for many years there.

    The plots are complex with many "red herrings." Somehow, Paul and his wife Steve always figure them out.

    If you are looking for reality and angst, this show will disappoint you. If you want to escape to an earlier, more genteel time, I believe you will enjoy spending a few hours with Paul and Steve Temple.

    This is the second show I've purchased and I intend to buy more of them.

    From 1938 to 1969 crime novelist and detective Paul Temple, together with his Fleet Street journalist wife Steve, solved case after case in one of BBC radio's most popular serials. They inhabited a sophisticated world of chilled cocktails and fast cars, where the women were chic and the men wore cravats, a world where Sir Graham Forbes, of Scotland Yard, usually needed Paul's help with his latest tricky case.

  • Dragnet: Old Time Radio - 380 Episodes

    "A CLASSIC!!!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    With all of the crime that is happening now, people should see that there was just as much crime 60 years. I'd recommend this to friends who are always complaining about "the good old days" and "these kids today". The mindset is the same among criminals - only the amount of firepower has changed. "Dragnet" is the father of all crime shows today, especially the in depth technical ones which involve forensics and DNA and also shows like "Law & Order" that used real crimes taken from newspaper reports or police files. Jack Webb was an innovator who created this genre of television.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    That question is not applicable here.


    Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    This is a multi-performer audiobook with different actors playing each role. That gives the listening experience a rare layered effect.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    IMPOSSIBLE! It's 16 Parts of 6 to 8 hours in each Part. But, say, I had nothing to do for a whole month, like I'm stuck in a hospital bed because I broke every bone in my body - I'd have to say that no one would WANT to listen to these episodes in one sitting or even one day. It's basically the same format over and over again - crotchety old landladies, snoopy neighbors, arrogant criminals, mouthy teens, precocious toddlers, each repeating the same dialogue from one story to the other. The "stage business" - walking, stirring coffee, typing, opening doors, balling up paper, etc. - gets irritating after a while. It worked 60 years ago because listeners wanted to get as much bang for their buck in the 30 minute show time. However, listening to Sgt. Friday "walking" on a hard floor for the first 100 episodes, it becomes a bit old to have to hear it for 260 more shows.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I enjoyed this "book" which is actually recordings of old radio shows, even with the snaps, crackles and pops. That's what gives it the dated feeling. However, the original recording was poorly done with no levels adjusted from one season to another, much less episodes. I had to give up the ghost when "the needle got stuck", playing several parts over and over again. In the old days, we'd just lift up the record player arm or put a coin on it to hold it in the groove. Here it is apparent that the engineer wasn't paying attention during the production and that Audible did no quality control afterwards.

    NOTE: A highlight of these old shows is the advertisements. To hear the manufacturers of Fatima ("The Long Cigarette") and Chesterfields ("The Mild Cigarette") insist that smoking is healthy for you and that THEIR product is the very best is both funny and sad. Fatima goes on and on about how smokers switching to Fatima has increased by 500% since its last "report". If you've lost a loved one to lung cancer, this will be hard for you to take. But that was the way it was back then. People lit up a cigarette for any reason, even in a hospital bed!

  • "Top performance of a classic story"

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    This story has some unique features among Agatha Christie's books. There's no second murder to help narrow down the suspects, and Poirot must solve the crime in a matter of hours. Even if you've read the story before, this dramatisation is still worth listening to. The sound effects may not be quite movie standard, but they're convincing none the less. The acting is good, and the script writer left the original story alone. And for those of us who can't see, we can follow the story as well as our sighted friends staring at the radio. A pleasant two hours listening.

    Actor and producer Jack Webb's aims in Dragnet were for realism and unpretentious acting. He achieved both goals, and Dragnet remains a key influence on subsequent police dramas in many media.

    In 1962, Arthur Beauchamp is about to undertake his first murder trial. His defendant is Gabriel Swift, a politically active young aboriginal accuse of killing Professor Dermot Mulligan, a former mentor to both men. Arthur becomes increasingly convinced that the police evidence against Gabriel is not only flimsy, but suspiciously convenient in a system - and a society - with entrenched racist assumptions. But as the case progresses, Arthur develops an uncomfortable sense that Gabriel is not telling him the whole truth.
