  • The History of Harry Nile, Box Set 4, Vol. 13-16, August 1952 to Winter 1954

    "New "Old Time" Radio"

    Overall
    Performance
    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.


  • The History of Harry Nile, Box Set 5, Vol. 17-20, Winter 1954 to April 1956

    "Radio Drama Still Lives!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Thanks to Jim French, radio dramas are still being produced.

    I discovered the Harry Nile series years ago when it was broadcast on a local radio station. Sadly, that station no longer carries the series. So I was very happy to find the shows available at Audible.

    Harry Nile is a private detective who, in my opinion, does not fit the stereotypical "hard boiled" description. Harry is a former police officer. He is smart and kind. He is assisted by Murphy, a former librarian.

    Each episode runs about 20 minutes. The stories include some unique characters, such as "Keys Louise" and interesting information about Seattle, the location of Harry's business.

    For me these shows are very entertaining.

    Legions of fans know Opie & Anthony as the kings of "cringe radio," who dominate an expanding media empire. Since October 2004, their unique humor has been the centerpiece of High Voltage, the channel XM Satellite Radio created especially for them. Then, in April 2006, they took over the key morning drive slot on seven CBS Radio stations. Audible's Opie & Anthony subscription delivers both shows in one hilarious package!

    This landmark production, perhaps the most ambitious radio project ever attempted, began when Star Wars creator George Lucas donated the story rights to an NPR affiliate. Writer Brian Daley adapted the film's highly visual script to the special demands and unique possibilities of radio, creating a more richly textured tale with greater emphasis on character development.
