This was the best of Johnny Dollar, one of my favorite radio classic characters. It had several hours of listening pleasure which was s lot of bang for the buck.
I enjoy these series w/ Bob Bailey's interpretation of the personality of Dollar. I did not care for any of the other actors portraying him. It's a fun "read" while I am seeing or quilting.
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 love Boy Bailey's voice and greatly enjoyed all of these stories! It brings to mind what my mother used to put on the radio when we were kids. I LOVE it!
I have really fallen in love with the format of this series. Each storyline is divided into 5-15 minute segments. Each starting with a phone call to our hero Johnny Dollar.
Wonderful to step back into time and realize that things weren't simpler. Also realizing that there was still plenty of death, violence, and mischief in the media. It was just presented in different ways. But the stories are good and the characters interesting. After sampling a few of the classic detective series (like Philip Marlowe) Johnny is my favorite - better delivery of better one-liners.
And you get to learn a good bit about the insurance industry.
I never heard or listened to this program until I bought it and I'm glad I did. I loved the 15 minute chapter plays, I would listen to them on my way to work, or on my way, or on my work breaks. It was a joy to listen to. Johnny Dollar is an original detective, with guts and brains and a kind heart to go with the job. Bob Bailey does a good job as the detective. My only complaint is the last episode of this audio play. It was a different show all together, with a simple boring plot. The only thing it had in comen with Johnny Dollar, was Bob Bailey was in it. Should of left it out. I plan to listen to more Johnny Dollar in the future.
