Listen to “The Great Detectives of Old Time Radio” on Spreaker.
About the Show:

Great Detectives of Old Time Radio is a podcast focusing on Detective stories, originating from the heartland in Boise, Idaho.  Rather than show random stories as most podcasts do, or only doing one series, Great Detectives will focus on following the best detectives from the earliest available episode to the last.

Every Monday-Saturday, a different series will air.  When one series is finished, it will be replaced by another, which will be followed from earliest to latest available episode.  The shows are broadcast with commentary from Adam Graham that adds insight and lighthearted humor to these great shows.
About The Episodes We Show

The show we share on the podcasts meet two criteria. We believe them to be: 1) in the public domain and 2) in general circulation.

The only shows that I will consider are American-made shows or shows made for American syndication that were produced before February 15, 1972, British shows produced before June 1957, or Australian programs produced before 1969 and not currently sold by Grace Gibson Syndication.

Secondly, our shows are in general circulation. This means that with some effort, you could track down the episodes on our show yourself, or at least you could when we first found it, and could do it honestly. We do not use episodes that were taken for high quality CD collections from sites like Radio Archives, Audio Classics, or Radio Spirits.

Of course, quality is important too. See this page  for more information on the series that we plan to use and those we don’t.
