Big List of Old Time Radio Detective Shows

I get asked a lot about what shows we’re going to play as replacements in the line up become necessary, so I decided to make a list of the shows I would like to do, the shows I’m not going to do and those I’m not sure about. If there’s another detective show that’s not on the list, please leave it in the comments or call the show at 208-991-GR8D (4783).

The only shows that I will consider are either American made shows or shows made for American syndication that were produced before February 15, 1972.
