Summary

From start to finish, Dragnet brings you a real-life police drama of unprecedented realism. When the series hit the air in 1949, there was nothing else like it, anywhere. In this collection, Jack Webb and Barton Yarborough star in 20 broadcasts from the earliest months of radio's landmark police procedural.

Listen in as Joe Friday and Ben Romero keep Los Angeles safe from killers, burglars, swindlers, and common punks. Webb was one of the most distinctive actors, directors, and producers ever to work in American radio. And the episodes you're about to hear will demonstrate that.
