Richard Diamond, Private Detective is a detective drama which was on radio from 1949 to 1953 and on television from 1957 to 1960. Dick Powell starred in the Richard Diamond, Private Detective radio series as a rather light-hearted detective who often ended the episodes singing to his girlfriend, Helen (played by Virginia Gregg).

Hard knocks of a day in the life of one of the best private eyes in town. Dick Powell smart talks his way through all kinds of trouble, with a wham to the jaw of the bad guy and a soft spot for fairer sex, not to mention his serenades at the end of each episode. Love it!
