This includes 90+ episodes of Dangerous Assignment (1949 and 1950-53) with proper names for the episodes.

A good show of operative adventure - try it if you like action adventure

(4 stars)

WIKI gives us, "Waldo Brian Donlevy (February 9, 1901 – April 5, 1972), later known as Brian Donlevy was an American-born actor of Irish descent, noted for playing tough guys from the 1930s to the 1960s. He usually appeared in supporting roles. Among his best-known films are Beau Geste (1939) and The Great McGinty (1940). For his role as Sergeant Markoff in Beau Geste he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor." In Dangerous Assignment, he plays it straight, with some excellent downbeat intelligence, and quite a bit of just "going along with the action". The plots are sometimes hard to believe, but the stories move quickly with twist and turns, and give good escapist adventure tales, ala men's adventure magazines of the 1950's, such as Argosy, Saga, Real, Man's Life, etc. None are based on truth, but sometimes get very close to ongoing realities such as insurgents, kidnapping, stolen weapons and defense plans, etc. A government (OS-CIA-like) offical called the Comissioner lays out the need for Steve in the first few minutes, often to Steve's annoyance or even frustration. I didn't know it was also brought to TV, (after the radio run of 1949-53) as I never saw or even heard of that TV show. The music is forced and obvious, but well done and of interest in its own right. I like it, though some don't. That's the idea with this show. It's not really believable, but good escapist man's adventure.

32 minute shows

(0 stars)

Dealers do not pad shows with dead air. The shows do not sell for more money based on the length of the show. Typically, you pay one price for a show or disc full of shows regardless of the length of the show. When you see a set of mp3s with a consistent length such as 32 minutes and lots of dead air at the end, it means whoever did the encoding from tape set their computer program to record for 32 minutes and did not cut out the dead air when the actual recording stopped. Either the person did not know how to edit mp3 files to eliminate dead air or chose not to.


(5 stars)

Really great stories to spend an evening with, however they please little on the line of spiritual help. If you're looking for a thrill, bored to death, and have a decent amount of time to kill, take a listen.

Love, love, love these stories. Listen every night to àt least 2
