Here are 20 more dramas (three of double length) of Harry Niles cases from Winter 1954 to April 1956.
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 1950s-era character for a one-time-only broadcast. But audiences wanted more, and so began 26 years of episodes featuring Phil Harper as Harry. These are full-cast audio dramatizations.
Investigate more cases with Harry Nile.

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.
I am a proud Mexican woman that loves words and reading/listening to books. I also believe that only through knowledge can we achieve progress.
I have listened to Jim French and Harry Nile my whole life. I LOVE having it on my phone there whenever I want a listen
