McGrawRide along on the case with the Man from Homicide.  Lieutenant Lou Dana is that man, and he's got "a dirty dangerous job that doesn't end until the killer is found.  I don't like killers."

Man from Homicide, airing in the early 1950s, was a classic in the genre of crime drama.  Though not as well remembered as similar shows such as Dragnet or Broadway is my Beat, Man from Homicide brought audiences gritty stories, seedy criminals, sordid crimes and an outline of police procedure infused with drama.  Dan DuryeaLt. Dana is a cynical yet determined detective who has seen it all, and uses that experience to outwit less seasoned criminals and bring them to justice.

Dana was played by two accomplished film noir actors, Dan Duryea and Charles McGraw.  McGraw often played a leading man in 1940s and '50s film noir, and his gravelly voice and "rocks in a wheelbarrow" style of delivery is especially enjoyable in a radio format.  Dan Duryea was famous for a wide variety of roles and genres in Hollywood, and his radio work as Lt. Dana beautifully complemented his "bad boy" film noir persona.

This collection of the three existing episodes is a must have in any classic radio or crime drama collection.
