Nero Wolfe, featured in 46 novels, movies, and television series, first came to radio on April 7, 1943. The great character actor Sydney Greenstreet played him from 1950-51. Wolfe, the "gargantuan gourmet", solved crimes with an attention to detail that rivaled the great Sherlock Holmes. The overweight detective of Rex Stout's novels refused to leave his elegant brownstone on business, sending his wisecracking, two-fisted assistant, Archie Goodwin, out to do his legwork. This peculiar private investigator preferred tending to his beloved orchids over solving crimes. In fact, the only reason he worked at all was to keep up his lavish lifestyle.

Always loved Rex Stouts books and decided it would be fun to listen to the Sidney Greenstreet radio broadcasts and it was! Have to agree with a previous reviewer though that his interpretation of Wolfe's laugh was a bit strange. Overall he made Wolfe much more affable than in the books or the TV series. Just my opinion though. Still a fun listen!
