Whether murder or music, Dick Powell beguiled radio audiences through 100+ episodes before the show moved to television and the role was eventually taken over by David Janssen, later the star of The Fugitive.
Richard Diamond, Private Detective became the template for many of the private eye shows to follow on both radio and television. Gritty crime stories combined with lighthearted banter and, in this case, a musical number served up a compelling half hour of entertainment each week.
A must-have for fans of detective stories and Dick Powell.

Not as good as book 1
These episodes didn't seem as humorous as the first and the recording wasn't nearly as clean. There was indistinct background talking (a ball game?) throughout many of the recordings and changes in volume and clarity that sounded like the speaker had turned his/her head away from the mike. These were not present in book 1, but I still enjoyed it.
