This week marks the 71st anniversary of the launch of Dragnet. We’ll present a couple different specials featuring episodes from the landmark police drama created by and starring Jack Webb.
This week kicks of Monday with a whole day of Memorial Day tributes including the following:
It’s quite the famous folk’s birthday week as we celebrate movie star leading men, radio and television legends, singer/actors, famous detective novel authors and more.
It’s National Police Week, and while most of the in-person events have understandably been cancelled or curtailed, SiriusXM Radio Classics 148 continues our annual weeklong tribute to law enforcement by featuring episodes of Dragnet, Tales Of The Texas Rangers, Police Headquarters, Broadway Is My Beat, Calling all Cars, 21st Precinct, The Lineup and more. All of the police themed blocks are also available On Demand through the SiriusXM App.
Heading our list of birthday celebrants is the incomparable Orson Welles. Beginning with his one year stint as The Shadow (1937-38), Welles was a very prolific radio performer and we’ll present him in the following series among others: Black Museum, The Third Man, Suspense, Columbia Presents Corwin, fill-in hosting on The Jack Benny Program and Mercury Theatre On The Air’s version of “The Count Of Monte Cristo.”
