Description
 
Dragnet
Volume 13

 
Dragnet is one of the best remembered radio programs of all time. Although not the first to base its stories on real cases, Dragnet most assuredly was best in assuring that each program was as realistic as possible, from the first step heard to the last word spoken. This is evident in every episode featured in Dragnet, Volume 13 from Radio Archives!
 
Dragnet creator and star Jack Webb insisted from the moment in 1948 when he was inspired to create the program that it would be as true to life as possible. After recording an audition, Webb approached the Los Angeles Police Department for its approval, which was given under certain conditions. Webb agreed to each one, even carrying his desire for realism farther than the police demanded.
 
Dragnet portrayed each procedure followed by policemen accurately, but took this accuracy even further. If a policeman read a description from a report, then listeners heard a page flip as descriptions were beyond the first page in an actual report. Steps from one office to the other or up the front steps of the police station numbered exactly the same as they did in real life.
 
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 13, meticulously restored for your listening enjoyment by Radio Archives.

OK someone had to title a review like that. Love Jack Friday's way of cutting out all the crap.
