Radio Private Eyes
Having been disappointed with such comes shows as Our Miss Brooks, My Friend Irma, and Then Bickersons, I thought I would try crime dramas, which proved to be more entertaining and better written.
Always a joy to listen to, over and over again.
Great Radio Private Eyes is like a box of my favorite chocolates! Each story is first rate action and mystery.
