Season Three of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! This time it's Paul's pick -- and he's bringing us an (ahem) unusual episode of Gangbusters for us to (ahem) enjoy and discuss.

And since we're on the subject of discussion, we hope to determine whether this entry meets the following criteria:

1. Is it truly representative of that series? (Can anyone point to it and say, "Yes, that is what [NAME OF SERIES] was all about.")

2. Is it an episode worthy of inclusion in any and every OTR aficionado's private collection?

So with this in mind, we three bring you, as our twenty-eighth number (but 3rd official episode of S3), this episode of Gangbusters - The Case of Harry "Red" Bever, yes, you read that right, from 1945. We'll introduce the show, play it in its entirety, then discuss it at length. Thanks for joining us, and we hope you enjoy it!

To comment on how we might improve OTR-E, or give suggestions for future discussions, please write to us at f6point3@gmail.com . Put the word "Essentials" in the subject line.

Your feedback means a lot to us! A review at iTunes or at your usual podcatcher would be appreciated.

Next Time: An episode of The Red Skelton Program, and a guest programmer!
