Old Time Radio
I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is right up at the top.
The banter between Sam Spade and his secretary
This is real radio and real theater of the mind at it's best
Sam Spade is at it again
I am a huge fan of old(e) time radio. This makes me feel like I am there, was there, and enjoying the old(e) ways.
