Re: RARA-AVIS: Re: RARA-AVIS Johnny Dollar

I love the Johnny Dollar show -- have the two volumne set from Radio Spirits, but unfortunately they seem to have exhausted their supply of five-part shows and are only currently selling the half-hour shows. The five-parters are excellent, like Dixon said, more character and story development and Johnny even comes off halfway human in most of them, which is something a lot of radio eyes never achieved (Richard Diamond would be the other that ccomplished this within a relatively short show time).

Every hard-boiled buff should check out Johnny Dollar -- a definate treat. The writers were always able to have the show open with Johnny answering a telephone (that's how he announced himself at the beginning of the show), without being corny or contrived. --Brian
