Of all the Detective Radio Shows available, this one has a special flair all its' own. And like other Radio Shows starring Jeff Chandler and Gerald, Mohr, Alan Ladd greatly enhances the charm of these well written and Hollywood inspired stories. "Box Thirteen" is probably the most mild mannered of them all. Guns are fired and people are often hit in the head, but overall much more easy going that the case with other shows.
As usual the Radio Archives Staff have done a great job with exceptional sound and tonal quality. Each Volume comes in a sturdy plastic box, with individual plastic sleeves for added protection of each CD.
If you like a good detective radio mystery from the Golden Age of Radio, the charm and talents of Alan Ladd as an Actor and with a "Million Dollar Voice", "Box Thirteen" will not disappoint you. I am sure Orson Welles knew that when he chose Ladd for the role he played in "Citizen Kane", as he had both the looks and the voice.

These early episodes of "Box 13" find the show still finding its footing (and Alan Ladd growing comfortable with the role), but they represent a strong start to a fun detective show. "Box 13" has been one of my favorites since I discovered old time radio, and I love that the entire series is available in great condition. As always, the discs from Radio Archives sound wonderful.
