  • "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.

    On New Year's Day, 1976, radio listeners were introduced for the first time to a former Chicago cop turned hard-luck private detective named Harry Nile, the brainchild of mystery fan Jim French, who created the 1940s-50s-era character for a one-time-only broadcast. But audiences wanted more, and so began 26 years of episodes. Here are 24 dramas covering Harry Niles' cases from May 1956 to Summer 1958. These are full-cast audio dramatizations.

    Story

    When I was very young, TV was just getting started and radio dramas were a main source of entertainment for our family. I've long been a fan of classic American radio shows. It was a pleasant surprise to discover this 1951 mystery from the BBC.

    This is a well produced, well acted full cast mystery. There are lots of characters, lots of plot twists, and many "red herrings." I had great fun listening to it. Considering the age of the recording, the sound quality is quite good.

    The audio book includes a BBC documentary about the history of this series. The series ran for 30 years in Britain. After listing to this episode, I can understand why.

    I will be looking for more Paul Temple mysteries!

    In this adventure, Paul Temple is called in to investigate the disappearance of the Desmond baby, and the 'Sitter-In' Miss Millicent. When they visit Mary Desmond she is, understandably, very upset, it's already been a week since her eighteenth-month-old daughter vanished. The only clue is a telephone message left in Miss Millicent's handwriting: 'A Mr. Vandyke telephoned, he left no message'.

Tracy's greatest hits:
  • Kate Brannigan: Clean Break (BBC Radio Crimes)

    "A Short, Fun and Fast-Paced Listen"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I really liked McDermid's female PI, Kate Brannigan, in the two earlier novels I have read, and I totally enjoyed this BBC dramatization.

    The narrator does a great job as Kate, who is a spunky and creative detective with fighting skills and connections to the less-savory characters of society. The characters are not really deeply developed, as this is a Kate and Plot driven plot - but it's a good, light listen for sure, has some fun twists, and excitement thrown in, too.

    If you are not familiar with dramatized audio books - please note: this is not a full reading of the actual book, but rather, the book has been adapted into a script that is performed by various actors. Kind of like watching TV, but no need for visuals. Hence, dramatized books are quite a bit shorter than an actual audio book. Personally, I really enjoy a good dramatized book - often for lulling me to sleep at night instead of dumb TV shows; sometimes they are perfect for a shortish drive; other times they just fill a blank space while I'm cooking or whatever. In any case, all the BBC productions I've listened to are extremely well-done, and this one is no different.

  • "Excellent story... different Poirot..."

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    I have become addicted to the dramatized Poirot stories in the past year or so. After listening to about 20 of them, I have noticed a few things. Some seem to follow a rather set pattern while others go along in a seemingly nonsensical way until -bam!- the solution appears.

    This book is unique in that where it has many elements of other Agatha Christie tales (ex: a murder on a train, a romance that may or may not be a good idea, Poirot's ambiguity on certain moral issues) it stands apart in how the story plays out. As usual, there are suspects a-plenty, but every time you think you have the killer pegged, that's about the time a new prime suspect crops up. It should keep you engaged all the way through without the annoying "Oh, it's obvious that guy did it and now I have to listen to 2 more hours of an unnecessary story" syndrome.

    There was one main difference in this dramatization from the majority (or even all) of the others available: Hercule Poirot is voiced by a different actor. I was really used to John Moffat in the role and as such, hearing Maurice Denham exercising his "little grey cells" was a little hard for me. It was a little like switching Darrens (or Beckys, depending on your generation) and that took me out of the story. But after listening to it 3 or 4 times (yes, it's good enough to do that), he grew on me. I still prefer John Moffat, but not to the point where I can't listen.

    As for the rest of the main cast, I don't know all the names, but the voices for Mr Van Alden, Major Knighton, Katherine Grey and Derek Kettering seemed spot on. The voice for Mirelle was really shrill and grating, but that fit the character perfectly. Ruth Kettering sounded like she was the same actress as Louise from "Murder in Mesopotamia" and for some reason, I can't see her as either of those characters. Her voice has a slight lisp to it that doesn't fit with the image of a glamorous femme fatale, but that's my take. The voice of Ada Mason just drove me batty, but again, maybe that was the point for the character.

    All in all, this is one of my favorite Poirot stories. I really recommend it if you enjoy Agatha Christie at all.

    Philip Marlowe is a fictional private eye created by Raymond Chandler. Marlowe first appeared, under that name, in The Big Sleep, published in 1939. The Adventures of Philip Marlowe was a radio series featuring the Marlowe character. It first aired 17 June 1947 on NBC radio and moved to CBS radio a few months later. By 1949, it had the largest audience in radio. The CBS version ran for 114 episodes. While many fans of classic hard-boiled detective stories are familiar with Chandler's novels and short stories, few have heard these radio shows.
