Ok in small doses

Due to the editing designed to preserve authentic radio weekly presentation format there is much endless repetition of musical stings, announcer's gush, and intros. The tales are entertaining if not outstanding.

Philip Marlowe

Philip Marlow's full series is an excellent radio show and represented by primary actors. I found this book to be great fun and bring back old memories to the radio shows.

Fantastic for listening while at work!

I love listening to this In it’s Authentic form, with both headphones in you’re immersed in the world of Phillip Marlowe, highly enjoyable if you’re a fan of the dime detective and black mask magazines of the past.

Noir time-machine

These bite-sized stories can be enjoyed as a snack or a multiple-choice meal. They are original radio broadcasts with sound effects and orchestral underscoring that made the experience deliciously authentic. This version has undergone a digital remastering, however lower register voices are sometimes more difficult to discern so avoid background cacophony.
The stories may be formulaic, however they are greatly entertaining and you end up wishing Marlowe would lean over and call you baby <sigh>.
