Created by Blake Edwards of The Pink Panther fame, Richard Diamond, Private Detective came to NBC radio in 1949 starring film actor and singer Dick Powell. Powell had recently played Philip Marlowe in the popular RKO film Murder, My Sweet and jumped at the chance to play a suave detective on radio. Edwards´ hard-boiled private detective scripts for Richard Diamond, Private Detective became NBC´s answer to Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe, reflecting Edwards´ unique humor. Richard Diamond was a lighthearted, New York-based private eye who enjoyed poking fun at the cops and singing songs to his millionairess girlfriend, Helen Asher, played by Virginia Gregg. The show´s theme song, ´´Leave It to Love´´, was whistled by Powell at the beginning of each episode.

In 1935 when Phillips H. Lord created Gang Busters, the crime rate was high and confidence in law enforcement was low. Crimes were highly publicized, and their perpetrators were sometimes glamorized in Hollywood movies. With most radio crime programs dramatizing pulp-fiction stories, Lord decided to portray the procedure and practices of real-life law enforcement officers, basing his dramas on court records and police files. Quite often, at the close of the program, nationwide ´´clues” consisting of descriptions of suspects and contact information for the relevant police force or FBI, where given out. By May 1942, more than 250 criminals had been apprehended as a result of the clues on Gang Busters, reinforcing the series’ central message - the futility of crime! Later, popular TV programs, such as America’s Most Wanted and Unsolved Mysteries would make use of this same device. Enjoy 12 exciting Gang Busters episodes in this ´´true crime” collection! 9/29/45 ´´The Case of John K.
