Classic Old Radio Shows

Classic Old Radio shows starring Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce. The series ran from 1939-1946. This series of shows seem to be from quite late in the run. The sponsor here was Petri wine & the commercials are quite awful, but they can be overlooked. There are also a few interesting war announcements. The only problem with the cd set is that the shows are not released in chronological order & you don't know the dates of the shows (but they are from late in the series). Other than that they are great radio mysteries. A must for the Sherlock Holmes fan.

I have this series in audio cassette format and was delighted to find Volume III after owning I and II for quite awhile. I hope that there will be a Volume IV in the near future which would complete the set.

Uncommonly Good Radio Days Survivors

Somehow Sherlock Holmes has had many good continuation book series and presentations, seeming to me more than any other established character. As in this series of radio programs with Anthony Boucher as one, it seems to be due to some very good writers who have taken up the projects. Since Holmes and his stories are longtime favorites of mine, I have really enjoyed this trend. No doubt, when Jeremy Brett came along in the Granada presentations some decades ago, the Rathbone-Bruce combination was set aside by many previous adherents. One could go so far as to say they were left in the shade.

Sherlock Holmes on classic radio

 on February 28, 2017

In my opinion, Basil Rathbone is the consummate Sherlock Holmes. With Nigel Bruce, he starred in the radio broadcasts for seven years, with 30 half-hour shows a year. They were also in a number of feature films during World War II. These reprints of the original radio shows are wonderful. Between the excellence of the writing team and the 2 stars, the programs are fast paced and gripping. I listen to them over and over again and never tire of the stories. Unfortunately, most of the episodes are not represented. I would like more and more and more. If anyone else loves classic radio as much as I do, this collection is a 'must have.'

I've been a fan of Sherlock Holmes in many incarnations for the past 45 years. My mother used to get me out of bed to watch 'The Late Show' on TV back then if they were running The Marx Brothers or Sherlock Holmes. I'd drag off to High School the next day, none too bright eyed nor bushy-tailed, but in my honest opinion, enriched for having been exposed to the likes of Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce in those fine movies.

Doesn't get much better than this for listening to old radio shows. Of course they are not the cannon and Holmes battles Nazi's and sundry other bad guys that Doyle never thought of, but who cares? These are fun stores, with two great actors that you get to spend half an hour with. The organ music is a touch cheesy, but back then I guess they thought it was great.

Love Holmes

I grew up on Sherlock Holmes and have always considered him THE master detective. And I've always considered Basil Rathbone as the only real Sherlock Holmes. All others are just imposters to me. Although these are much shorter stories than the movies I've watched or the books I've read they are still great. My wife an I listen to them instead of music while going out for rides which we do often. I also like the little narratives that go along with each episode that provide some history and background into the making of each of these episodes. They are great.
