Reviews

Fun show

(3 stars)

This is a pretty good little armchair detective show featuring the title character and his gal-pal assistant. Note: Victory Garden episode is actually Clue in the Clouds. Clouds is a good start episode if you're not familiar with this show. The Grey Kitten is also worth a listen.

Casey was role model for young journalist

(5 stars)

Although I don't recall hearing the program, I was familiar with the 4 x 5 Speed Graphic camera that Casey used. My father showed me how to use one as a young journalist, but he never did what Casey did in the programs. First of all, you didn't take photos of corpses and put them in the paper. You got your info from the coroner who was in charge of the crime scene when he arrived. Casey obviously worked for a tabloid newspaper like the old New York Post. He was like Mr. Keen in that he obtained information without regard to a search warrant. It is amusing to hear how he would take photos of a corpse before any investigation was done. Anything for a story. People thought that you would actually do that after listening to these stories. Interesting too, that Casey Crime Photographer was similar to Hot Copy, another newspaper drama where the girl reporter was also named "Ann" and had a boyfriend with the police department. Also, real life reporters did not hang out in bars as much as their radio counterparts where their editors could get in touch with them. Still the program is enjoyable listening, and remembering back when you wanted to be an ace reporter.

Swapped filenames

(0 stars)

Great collection... Thanks for putting it here. I noticed the episodes "Bright New Star" and "Death in Lover's Lane" have each others filenames, but they are on the right lines in the table. That is, as of Dec. 21, 2011, despite the huge file name to the contrary, this really is "Bright New Star": http://www.archive.org/download/Casey_Crime_Photographer/1947-08-07_0197_-_Casey_Crime_Photographer_-_Death_In_Lovers_Lane_Anchor-Hocking_s_1st_Anniversary_Show_-_32-22_-_30m58s.mp3

Love the old shows, to me it's like a door way to the past, that sweet simple time when families mom, dad and children would gather around the radio after supper chores were done to enjoy a little entertainment before bed. The good old days.

One of My Favorite OTR Shows

(5 stars)

Silly, light, and wonderful! It's a laugh, and a mystery to solve. For me, this is one of the best OTR shows because of its humorous characters and tricky puzzles. Fun stuff!
