Originally broadcast by the NBC radio network starting in 1949 until 1957, this episode of Dragnet is the 68th of what would be a 237 episode run entitled “The Big Death” and was first heard back on September 28, 1950. The popularity of Jack Webb’s Joe Friday and fellow officers (Sergeant Ben Romero in this episode) of the LAPD on radio would translate to television starting in 1951.
So leave that yard work for just a little bit later and come join us as we return to a simpler time and follow Joe Friday and Ben Romero as they investigate ‘The Big Death’ on Retro Radio Memories!
