Calling All Cars, Volume 2

William Robson

Calling All Cars, a popular crime drama heard from 1933 to 1939. One of radio’s earliest and most durable police procedural shows, the series' stark and gritty realism is strongly reminiscent of Warner Brothers gangster films of the 1930s- particularly with the presence of real-life LAPD dispatcher Jesse Rosenquist, whose unique voice and name became the show's trademark; Rosenquist contributed to the American lexicon the program's title and the now time-honored phrase that is all. None of the actors on the series ever received on-air credit, but sharp eared radio fans can hear the likes of Elvia Allman, Jackson Beck, Charles Bickford, Gale Gordon, John Bigson, Richard LeGrand, and Hanley Stafford. Episodes include: The Cut Rate Murder, The Murder of a Soul, A Cup of Coffee, Some Strychnine, and You, The Moving Picture Murder, Highlights of 1934, Crime Does Not Pay, The San Quentin Prison Break, Banker in the Well, California's Two-Man Crime Wave, Undercover Woman, The Mae West Jewel Robbery
