Candy was as dogged a man-hunter as any of her hard-boiled male counterparts, and just as quick with a wisecrack in the face of danger. And, the show boasts one of the most unique crime fighting duos in radio history! Candy's sidekick is the cultured, flamboyant and possibly 'light-in-the-loafers' Rembrandt Watson. Watson was a true friend dedicated to Candy and Candy was a true detective dedicated to fighting crime, solving mysteries, and collecting crisp cold cash from clients. Natalie Parks played the sexy, sassy, fearless heroine, in a program created and helmed by her husband, veteran producer-writer Monty Masters.
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.
