I am taking this week off from podcasting. My brother is here from New Mexico for a visit and I wanted to have some extra time for the fun stuff. Not to worry though I do have a story for you, just without all the extras. So please download or stream as normal.
The story for this week comes from the great detective OTR series Richard Diamond, Private Detective. Dick Powell stars as a light-hearted detective who often ended the episodes singing to his girlfriend, Helen (Virginia Gregg). It began airing on NBC Radio in 1949. The shows were written by the great Blake Edwards, so you know scripts are sharp and humorous. Its theme, "Leave It to Love", was whistled by Powell at the beginning of each episode. The episode you will hear is called Timothy the Seal and first aired on February 5, 1950.
