Publisher's Summary

This Dragnet episode originally aired on October 20, 1953.

From 1949 to 1957, Dragnet pioneered new levels of realism on radio. Every crime investigated by Sergeant Joe Friday was taken from the actual case files of the Los Angeles Police Department, with only "the names changed to protect the innocent". There were multi-layered sound effects; the actors used accurate police lingo, abbreviations, and penal codes; and the show didn't shy away from stories about heinous crimes or stories that had unhappy endings. Created and produced by Jack Webb, Dragnet was much more than "just the facts".

Fact: you can download more episodes of Dragnet, or pick them up in collected volumes.

    "Smith buys an electric razor...."
    Any additional comments?

    and then the story begins. Frank is hilarious. Sometimes I wonder what happens in police departments as the cases are being worked on. Car stripping is the main story but it follows the escapades of Frank Smith.
