    Hollywood's beloved song and dance man, Dick Powell, turned gumshoe in this 1945-era detective yarn. At once a tough-talking detective working with police to solve tough murder cases and yet an affable crooner who ended nearly every episode singing to his girlfriend in his rich baritone voice. Whether murder or music, Dick Powell beguiled radio audiences through 100+ episodes before the show moved to television and the role was eventually taken over by David Janssen, later the star of The Fugitive.

    Diamond Detective Agency. A pleasant smile, a cheerful rhyme, and we'll keep you from doing time. A quip, a carefree whistle, and a case closed - that's Dick Powell's Richard Diamond. Clients can be scarce, but he's not a bit worried. You see, he's "in partnership with a shill called human nature." And she's really quite reliable. Sooner or later someone will need his services for matters of protection or pay back, blackmail or bombs, modern art or murder.

    In this entertaining anthology of seven new ghost stories, written especially for Naxos AudioBooks, we meet all kinds of phantoms in different situations: a kind-hearted but accident-prone spectre unwittingly upsetting a family home, as well as ghosts in ancient Egypt, on board a pirate ship, and in a Newcastle swimming pool. Engaging and slightly sinister, The Clumsy Ghost and Other Spooky Tales is a delightful shiver for all the family.

    Dick Powell is Richard Diamond, private detective, the quick-witted, lighthearted detective. Quite possibly radio's first singing detective, Diamond was always quick with a quip or a sarcastic response. He sang his way through over 150 fast-paced adventures, most of which were written by Blake Edwards before the start of his successful career as a film director.

    Richard Diamond, Private Detective was one of the great gems of the last decade of commercial network dramatic radio. Tailor made for star Dick Powell, the sleuth is an amalgam of elements of Philip Marlowe with Powell’s own boy singer past. Diamond is a tough detective and while he often faces long odds and takes his beatings, he always rebounds with humor and style.

    Dick Powell established himself as a silver screen icon in the 1930s as the apple-cheeked crooning sensation in countless Depression-era musicals. But the 1940s found him playing every tough guy from Philip Marlowe to Richard Rogue...to Richard Diamond, private detective. Powell's portrayal of Diamond and his flawless chemistry with Virginia Gregg as the detective's socialite girlfriend, Helen Asher, brought the series' admiringly clever scripts to life.
