Retro Radio Memories Podcast Ep. 073 (The Fat Man)

Welcome back to the Retro Radio Memories Podcast! Each week I will briefly talk about an old time radio episode before presenting it for your listening enjoyment. Today we have an episode from the popular and long running series The Fat Man entitled “Murder Plays The Horses”! This Old Time Radio show was created by the legendary Dashiell Hammett…although as I explain in the podcast there is some pretty good evidence that he didn’t do all that much on the show.

If you have any comments or feedback for the show you can e-mail them to at You can also reach me on Twitter and of course on Facebook.

The music on the podcast was provided by Peachy! You may contact him by e-mail at And be sure to “Like” him on his Facebook Page before he decides to head down to the track and bet on the horses….
