MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING OLD TIME RADIO SHOWS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. HE LISTENS TO THEM WHILE HE IS WORKING IN THE DARKROOM.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE THEM WITH OTHERS SO THEY COULD ENJOY THEM ALSO.
Old-time radio historian John Dunning once described the popular radio series "Casey, Crime Photographer" as having “more history than substance. It was a B-grade radio detective show, on a par perhaps with "The Falcon," better than Mr. Keen, but lacking the polish and style of Sam Spade.”
This assessment of this series, published in his history of old-time radio, "On the Air: The Encyclopedia of Old-Time Radio," is a tad harsh. Any detective program will pale in comparison to "The Adventures of Sam Spade," a show that many consider the gold standard of private-eye dramas, and to classify "Casey" as better than "Mr. Keen, Tracer of Lost Persons" is damning it with faint praise. Many of "Casey’s" surviving episodes reveal it to be a program spotlighting witty dialogue, fanciful characters and a not-entirely-unbelievable atmosphere of setting much of the show’s action against the backdrop of the Blue Note Cafe the hang out for most of the reporters.
I had read and enjoyed the fiction exploits of reporters from time to time, but I also knew that it was the photographer accompanying such newsmen who frequently had to stick their neck out to get an acceptable picture. This is turn meant that while the reporter with his pad and pencil could describe a warehouse or dockside fire from a safe distance, the guy with the camera had to edge far closer to get a negative that would merit reproduction.
