First of all, this only lasts 10 minutes, not 20. Secondly, it is not the normal Disney story. It's a cute story, but not at all what I was expecting and at only ten minutes, quite a disappointment.

More audio adventures of radio's greatest and funniest female private detective! Two complete radio shows plus special commentary. "Candy Matson, Yukon 2-8209, starring Natalie Parks is considered the best of radio's female private eyes. Bright, sparkling and witty, Candy Matson features the sharpest dialogue this side of the William Powell-Myrna Loy "Thin Man" movies.

  • The stories are great, but they're only 1/2 of it.

This recording may be an hour long, but it consists of (1) a 15 minute introduction to the series, which is helpful and interesting; (2) the first 15-minute episode; (3) another 15 minutes talking about the show (not very interesting, some I disagreed with, and some I found offensive); and (4) another 15 minute episode. The episodes are wonderful and remind me of the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich... right down to the brusk cop/love interest! I wish they'd offer more episodes and less commentary, but it's still worth the price.
