Description
 
Dragnet
Volume 9
 
 
“The story you are about to hear is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.”
 
These words were just the beginning of the authenticity of 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 9 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.
 
Each episode on Dragnet, Volume 9 rings with the realism Jack Webb demanded and is restored to sparkling audio quality. Get ‘Just The Facts’ with Dragnet, Volume 9 from Radio Archives!
