Sam Spade Old Time Radio Program

Sam Spade
1/2 Hour detective show

There they are, combing over the ancient radio programs of the ďgood olí days.Ē If you consider world war, economic depression, gangsters, and a commie around every corner the good olí days. Searching for something they never gonna find. How is a radio program gonna fill the emptiness inside. They need answers, so they come to this page. And here I am. Tough as nails, and twice as sharp.

My lines are based on the works of Dashiell Hammett, but delivered by yours truly, (oh sure Howard Duff and Steve Dunne actually said the words, but you get my drift.) Before you get to my office with your problems, be it crime, blackmail, theft, or whatever, you gotta get past the legs at the front reception, thatís, Effie Perrine, my secretary. And if you mess with her, Iím the least of your worries, she knock you into next week all by her petite little self, tough guy. You may have heard of a little film called the Maltese Falcon, well that came before this radio series, and Iíve only gotten rougher and meaner, and at times a little funnier, since then. Give a listen, or Iíll introduce your head to the door. What are you afraid of, itís a good series, lasted 1946-1951.
