Description
 
Dragnet
Volume 11

 
Known for breaking new ground in radio and entertainment, Dragnet was truly a pioneering program in many ways. This was most evident in the actual stories told in each episode, some sentimental, some brutal, all as realistic as show star and creator Jack Webb could make them. Strong stories and great characterizations make up every show featured in Dragnet, Volume 11.
 
The story featured in each episode is, as noted in the famous opening narration, “…true.” Although many shows focused on lesser crimes, Dragnet did not shy away from violence or topics thought forbidden. This program was in every sense a true police procedural and dealt with crimes of all sorts. Dragnet was one of the first radio shows to deal with crimes involving sexual motivations, true psychological issues, drug use among juveniles, and even the murder of children. Never gratuitous in its portrayal, Dragnet dealt with all crimes the same way that Jack Webb delivered Joe Friday’s lines - honestly and starkly.
 
The realistic interplay of characters on Dragnet captures a listener’s attention, giving fans that almost fly on the wall feeling as they listen to Friday and his partner investigate and interrogate. Enjoy episodes featuring honest, realistic stories and great performances on Dragnet, Volume 11.
