DRAGNET Dragnet , the brainchild of Jack Webb, may very well be the most well-remembered, and the best, radio police drama series. From September, 1949 through February 1957, Dragnet 's 30 minute shows, broadcast on NBC, brought to radio true police stories in a low-key, documentary style.

A 1957 episode of "Ozark Jubilee", a music series (plus a comedy sketch). Guests include Brenda Lee and Sonny James. Rex Allen is guest host. Direction is below 1957 standards, but well, it aired on under-funded (and under-watched) ABC. Picture and sound quality are below usual standards. This copy contains the original commercials for gum and booze.

A return to old-time radio for this episode, in the shape of an entire live (transcribed) Grand Ole Opry Show from 1949, with Red Foley, Hank Williams, Little Jimmy Dickens, Roy Acuff, and others. Lots of fun songs and comedy in there; and we also present highlights from the radio work of the Blue Sky Boys , otherwise known as the Bolick Brothers, who aren't played so much anymore, but they feature lovely harmonies and good songs. Classic country material. Enjoy!

Just when she is about to leave town with her husband-to-be the still lovesick Grant drafts her to cover one final breaking news sensation.
