Today’s Recommended Old Time Radio Show: the DRAGNET episode BIG GIRL!

“The story you are about to hear is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent. Oct 1949- You are a detective sergeant You’re assigned to robbery detail. 16 persons have been robbed and beaten senseless. The victims describe the assailant as a tall, beautiful woman. Your job… stop her.”
— from the DRAGNET episode BIG GIRL

Jack Webb is the force behind some of my favorite Old Time radio shows, among them PAT NOVAK and PETE KELLY’S BLUES, but DRAGNET was clearly his most successful show. A favorite of law enforcement officers, and with the full backing of law enforcement agencies throughout the US, it’s easy to see why its no-nonsense format compelled.

Six Decades later and the show still compels. Listen to BIG GIRL for yourself HERE!
