Unfortunately the recording is not up to standard. Not very easy to follow and understand.
Due to the cost this should have been made more aware
I really enjoyed listening to these stories, it was a wonderful mix of humour and violence, filled with wit, romance and action. it really offered something for everyone. not to say it was without problems, some of the episodes had poor sound quality and some were repeated, sometimes rather close together. it also seemed to be missing 20 of the promised episodes. overall very entertaining, with a great cast, but let down in a few key areas, still I'd recommend it.
Any additional comments?
Richard Diamond is just great.
It is probably the ONLY detective radio drama of its time to have a sense of humor.
The series is somewhat similar to the style of story penned by Raymond Chandler in his Philip Marlowe mysteries but with a few laughs thrown in here or there.
These stories have definitely withstood the test of time. I doubt it would be possible to make a radio drama as good as Richard Diamond even using today's technology. It just has a certain charm to it that can never be recreated.
9.5 / 10.0

Where does Richard Diamond, Private Detective: Old Time Radio - 122 Shows rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
The show itself is great. The first episode was so fuzzy as to be almost unlistenable. But the remaining chapters seem okay so far.
What other book might you compare Richard Diamond, Private Detective: Old Time Radio - 122 Shows to and why?
Phillip Marlowe, Sam Spade
