Dragnet Vol. 18

Publisher's Summary

From 1949 to 1957, Dragnet pioneered new levels of realism on radio. Every crime investigated by Sergeant Joe Friday was taken from the actual case files of the Los Angeles Police Department, with only "the names changed to protect the innocent". This collection features six episodes of the classic series:

Big Bid (1/26/1954)
Big Filth (2/2/1954)
Big Broad (2/9/1954)
Big Sucker (2/16/1954)
Big Pipe (2/23/1954)
Big Cup (3/9/1954)

These broadcasts feature multi-layered sound effects; the actors used accurate police lingo, abbreviations, and penal codes; and the show didn't shy away from stories about heinous crimes or stories that had unhappy endings. Created and produced by Jack Webb, Dragnet was much more than "just the facts".

Fact: you can download more collected volumes of Dragnet, and you can pick up the individual episodes.
