Summary

Based on the famous detective created by Rex Stout, "The New Adventures of Nero Wolfe" stars Sydney Greenstreet as "the balkiest, bulkiest, smartest, and most unpredictable detective in the world... that brilliant eccentric private detective, orchid fancier and gargantuan gourmet." Nero Wolfe, armchair detective in the classic tradition, and Archie Goodwin, wisecracking hard-boiled investigator, shine in eight radio tales from this classic detective series first broadcast in 1950-1951.

The original was better

Greenstreet is a good choice for Wolfe and the Goodwin character was OK, but these are not the original Rex Stout stories (as far as I can tell) and they are not as good. Amusing; not great.

Extremely annoying music

Average stories for radio. Very loud and annoying music woven between scenes in the stories.
