This show was over 7 hours of fun. It had ghost stories, crime stories, psycho stories, time travel stories, and space travel stories. It also had my favorite kind of endings for stories like these, the surprise ending. The Mysterious traveler was a great host, up there with the Whisiler. Listen to the last story, it's the funniest ghost story you will ever hear. The story even makes fun of the radio program its on. I hope they will release more Mysterious traveler stories soon.
Johnny Dollar has become one of my favorite radio shows. Its entertaining and I loved the hard boiled detective stories. Bob Bailey is also a great radio star. My only problem with this audio was what happened during the breaks in the show. Sometimes it's nice to listen to classic radio adds. But on most of radio plays breaks, instead of adds they played boring 3 minute documentaries. The favorite subject of these Education breaks is Americas state flags and the history of every flag of the Union. Anyone who has watched the TV comedy show the Big Bang theory, has probably seen Sheldon's blog Fun With Flags. The radio adds are a lot like the blog, but not at all funny. Now imagine your watching an exciting TV show like The Blacklist and instead of TV adds you get Fun with flags. After a while it will get a little tiring and makes it hard to enjoy your show. I want to be entertained, not educated.
I love this radio show. It's radio-noir at it best. It has a lot violence and romance in it. Dollar like all hard boiled detectives is tough, but with a heart of gold, always willing to help people. He meets a lot of beautiful women he often romances. The show doesn't shy way of the fact that some of the women he meets, might be guilty of the crime he's investigating, and he might have to send to them jail, or they end up getting murderd. I never heard of Bob Bailey until I started to listen to this show, I think he's great. One more peace of trivia, the theme music is also used on Lloyed Briges TV show Sea hunt.
