"By far the most popular police/crime program of all time. It enjoyed enormous success on radio." (Jon David Swartz and Robert C. Reinehr, Handbook of Old-Time Radio)
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
Jack Webb has a very recognizable voice, he is the voice of Dragnet. I listened to rebroadcasts of these episodes with my Grandma on late night radio. The tales are true stories with names changed to protect the innocent.
Each collection will appear in your library as individual titles, not as a collection. When you review each episode it will only appear on the individual downloads, not on this collection. If that bothers you then look at purchasing the individual episodes instead. In the Audible app this will show as 1 book for earning badges, but as 5 books in the My Library area.
If you want reviews from other listeners to validate your purchase decision then you will need to look at individual titles and not the collections. Weird, I know.
Dragnet is amazing because the crimes aren't different than they are today, just new technology to help both criminal and officer. No cell phones in Dragnet, dimes are used to pay for phone calls - even on private phones. Each episode is about 30 minutes, quick listens and great for short commutes or waiting lines.
