Apr 29, 2016

"Duh-duh-duh-duh.......duh-duh-duh-duh-DUHHHHHH!" Those famous notes are recognizable to people all over the world as the opening for "Dragnet," starring Jack Webb. On this episode, we speak with author Michael Hayde about this seemingly forgotten star and his impact on the genres of radio, television, and film. You'll hear about how Webb got access to LAPD case files, the transition of the show from radio to television, Webb's love for jazz, and his later shows, "Emergency!" and "Adam-12." Don't miss this show, or Detective Friday might come looking for you!
