ABOUT THIS OLD TIME RADIO SHOW:

"Official Detective dedicated to the men who guard your safety and protect your home…your police department."  

Official Detective is a classic old time radio police drama starring Craig McDonnell as Detective Lieutenant Dan Britt and Tommy Evans as Sergeant Al Bowen.  With the popularity of realistic police dramas like Dragnet, networked rushed to jump on the patty wagon. 

The show features a crime from the start to the end from a drunk accused of murder to bride that murders her groom after discovering that he married her for her money.  Even spinsters are unsafe at the hands of madmen and murderers.  Plots in this police melodrama offer great twists and an unusual lineup of the usual suspects including a "gay sailor" as a suspect in murder in a butcher shop.

Official Detective Stories is also the name of a popular crime story magazine in the 1940s and 50s which featured flashy covers with attractive women.Official Detective is entertaining and a great addition to fans of police drama shows.  It ran on and off the air for almost ten years, but only a few shows remain preserved in the old time radio vaults.
