    I just discovered your podcasts through the windows phone appstore and have downloaded all the programs to my Lumia 1520
    Because of this I have donated 20 bucks. YourColombo book and some Perry Mason stuff would be great. I am sitting outside of the I C U of a friend and only have my phone and a short attention span

    Hi Adam, love your program and you commentary. I just made a donation of $50 (twice I think) and would love to get the Michal Shayne paperbacks.

    Hi Adam, at the end Episode 1534: Man From Homicide: The Winthrop Case, you mentioned Jim Backus role as Mr Howell, as well as his many roles in radio. Also wanted to remind you he was the voice of Mr. Magoo.

    Keep up the good work!

    Question: how can the podcasts that arrive on my little ipod be played sequently, rather than my having to initiate each new episode when the last one ends?

    Adam, your podcasts are my favorite thing on the web. Thank you so much for your dedication to the classics. Also read your detective novel, very interesting! Kellie

    I’m having trouble streaming your podcasts through Google. Most of them will not play for the last two weeks. Does anyone know a reason why?

    Is anyone replying to these posts? If so, why aren’t they public? The reply’s may answer other peoples questions. Also, I’ve considered becoming a patron, but am disappointed with such little information regarding cast, writers, etc., in print along with the title and air date.

    These questions have been followed up by email. As to the Show notes details, I’ve not actually had other requests for that.

    Been listening a couple months. Love it so far. My question is what is the advantage of getting the app as opposed to listening through the website. Thanks.

    The app has easier access to all of the previous episodes. Also, there are three non-Detective Programs featuring stars of the Great Detectives of Old Time Radio that are featured on the app.

    Is the campaign still underway ?? I see March as the ending date but hear you talking about it on broadcasts in late August (I’m a bit behind).

    Hello Adam:

    I love the show, thank you for the hard work and dedication.
    I would love to donate directly. Do you by chance have a PayPal account that
    I could send a 1 time donation to.
    I don’t like using subscription services like Patreon.
    I am in Ontario, Canada, so do not want to send a cheque.

    Thank You and stay safe.

    I found your channel on YouTube quite by accident. As a lover of all murder mysteries from the classic novels to B black and white films I was thrilled to find a whole new library of mysteries via radio programs. How have I made it through life without knowing about these treasures? I’m donating today at the $100 level. Thank you for your hard work and the countless hours of entertainment your provide.

    Advertising psychotlines is absolutely awful if if you persist I will unsubscribe as I hope most of your listeners will

    Marc, I can definitely understand why you’re offended by the ad. However, I did not sign up the particular company. I have limited control over the ads that play on the podcast. Imagine if I had a syndicated AM radio program and the local station sold time to a psychic hotline. I have just as much control. I am able to bar some ads: those about politics, sexuality, and pregnancy, and I do so. However, there will be some ads aired that I wouldn’t choose as a name sponsor for the podcast, but there’s nothing I can do about it at this point.

    Hello! I have been enjoying listening to your curated episodes of the old radio detective shows. While listening to this episode, I could clearly hear the suspect last name pronounced as Cutler several times. If you are able to edit it, please update the episode title so it can be accurately identified. It is a matter of family name pride for me as a Cutler by birth, it was regularly vexing to be miscalled Butler or Cutter or Culter or even Colter. Thank you for all you do! Keep up the good work!

    Concerning episode 3980, you stated that you were surprised that children were riding horses to school in the early 1950s. My mother taught school in a one room schoolhouse at that time in rural western South Dakota. She said lots of her students rode horses to school. The ranches were too scattered and far from the school to walk. The roads were unpaved and extremely hard on cars, and were extremely muddy in the spring or impassable in the winter. A couple of times the roads were so impassable after a blizzard a plane would parachute supplies to my mother. So the radio show seems totally reasonable. By the way, thanks for getting my day off to a good start. I listen while a make my bed, brush my teeth, and shave.

    Great job on the podcast! I travel for business every week and Great Detectives is usually playing! I am still amazed at some of the listener comments that are offended by the way things used to be in the 30s, 40s, 50s. I am not sure if the being offended is genuine or not. I 56 years old and still am not sure what is going on with Wokeness, Triggering and so on.
    Please do not ruin the Great Detectives by apologizing and having spoiler alerts or what have you. Younger listeners need to put on their Big Boy/Girl shorts and toughen up.

    Love the Show and the Radio Dramas but not the listener Drama.
