The Forgotten Detectives of Old Time Radio

The Forgotten Detectives of Old Time Radio

119 episodes

What do a Prohibition-era Speak-easy clarinetist, a boys school headmaster who looks like William Shakespeare, a piano player, and a criminologist have in common with tough cops, an assistant DA, private eyes, and defense attorneys? They're all among the forgotten detectives of old time radio.

Join your host Adam Graham and rediscover these long-forgotten programs. Some of them may have aired for years, others for a single Summer, but all have left less than ten episodes behind. Together we'll take a listen to these obscure crime solvers.

Note: This is part of the larger Great Detectives of Old Time Radio podcast.
