This is a great daily feed of a variety of detectives from the golden age of radio. The shows are NOT all equal, and I certainly have my preferences. They are run in series, so that you’ll tune in to the full run of a particular program. Listening for years, I actually see evolution of some of...Read full review »

Thank you for doing this Adam!! Your effort in putting this together allows other 20 somethings like me invaluable access to this gold mine of suspense, mystery, and adventure! Story writing hasn’t been the same since!

I've subscribed to this podcast for several years, and now my partner has started listening too. We listen almost every night as we go to bed, the consistency of the format and the quality of the shows are amazing and comforting. I particularly like Rocky Jordan, especially for the portrayal of...Read full review »

Have loved OTR forever...rarely is the host a plus to the experience...Adam is the exception
Mr. Zelig via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/01/19
Hello Adam. Love your podcast. Have a question regarding the episode of rocky Jordan- the white beetle. The actor who plays me bannister has a very distinct voice. It sure sounds like the voice of the haunted mansion at Disneyland. Any chance it is? Thank you for a great podcast. ...Read full review »

Thank you, Adam, for your wonderful podcast. I’ve been listening for several years and also have your App. My husband first found you on internet radio and as southerners with distinctive accents, we find yours quite charming. Thanks for bringing us these great radio shows. Janet W.

The show that featured Jeff Ragen was not nearly as good as Joe Friday. Please keep Joe Friday on still.

Been listening for years! Love Johnny Dollar!!
MrBonezy1942 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/19
I thought you were going to repeat ALL Johnny Dollar episodes, beginning with number 1. Where are they? How often are you going to post? Every day would be great. Twie/week, maybe?

Very disappointed that Bill Cosby doesn’t talk enough in the podcast
jwhitt9107 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/12/19
I really enjoy this podcast. Thanks for introducing me to the world of old time radio detectives. Adam you are the man!!!
Kstratus via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/09/19
I am glad that Adam takes the time to bring us these radio shows. He puts in a lot of work and does a lot of research before he puts out these.

Im 30 yo and this is great!

I love classic radio detective shows and Adam has an extensive supply and provides excellent insight. I look forward to each new podcast. Thank you Adam!!
parkeranderson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/20/19
Best podcast on the internet. I listen to the Great Detectives every night at work. I love the variety, although Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar is my favorite. Thank you for doing what you do Adam, outstanding job!
CourtJunkieFan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/19
I wrote my first review for this podcast 9 years ago! Adam is still at it and I'm still listening. Super job!
iPhonerarooni via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/09/19
The host, Adam Graham puts on a smart and thoughtful podcast featuring all my favourite old time detectives. He addresses aspects of production, actors, story telling, and his own refreshing views. The show has a great balance of learning and entertainment. Thanks for a great show.
Luluplum via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/27/19
I absolutely love this! I recently discovered Adam’s podcasts a few weeks ago. Keep it up!
Nico say nano via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/25/19
I've been listening for several years now. The presenter does go on a bit but the shows and the old adverts are great "bite sized" fun! Strongly reccommend.
E.Cowes man via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/24/19
I have to give this three stars because I like the actual episodes, but Adam’s voice makes my flesh crawl. I usually just try to fast forward past anything he’s saying, but I inevitably forget while listening to the shows themselves and get a nasty jolt when he starts speaking afterward. If you...Read full review »

Found this podcast a few weeks ago and have been hooked! I work in a body shop and this is a great way to block the noise and get some entertainment at the same time! Keep up the good work
StudebakerMaker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/07/19
... the podcaster’s intro and ending are at such a higher decibel than the radio stories. I have turn it up to hear the stories then I’m blasted out when they end and the podcaster talks. It would be great if it was evened out.
meganthepagan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/18/19
Perfect for sleeping and outer noises
Raina925 via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 02/17/19
I first started listening a couple of years ago when I was ill and needed something to listen to when I couldn’t sleep. Since then I listen every night and can’t thank Adam enough for his continued effort putting this out. My husband now listens too - always impatient for more Rocky Jordan!...Read full review »
Odieandnermal via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/15/19
Love the old radio shows but fast forward through all the long monologues. A 5 minute monologue on the latest one. All other podcasts may have a 2 minute commercial but not the long nattering on and on by the host. Please stop.
Hrsoffun via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/01/19
Occasional poor sound quality? So what. Ads? So what. For years and years Adam has given us old time radio programs. I don’t know how he manages to do it 7 days a week...it must be exhausting. Any shortcomings are irrelevant compared to what we listeners get for free. I love this podcast.
buttonwillow9 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/12/18
With 200 episodes on iTunes there is certainly enough to hold your attention for a long time if you are into this sort of thing. I appreciate Host Adam Graham’s insights into each episode. I like how he gives background to the writers and producers of the episodes and any sort of historical...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to Adams podcasts for years and he has been improving every one of them. It’s a joy to listen each day to Adams new insights and new (old) program. Thanks.
Beestang06 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/28/18
This is top shelf A1 entertainment. Hop on. You won’t be disappointed. Love it.

Great shows, great host! Who could ask for more?
Ed Wood via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/03/18
Best podcast for old time detective radio shows. Adam (host) is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and eager to provide a great podcast.
phxross via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/18
I have been listening to OTR for several months and I love this show. I started listening while I was serving jury duty. I needed something to listen too while in between sessions. Ever since then I have started listening while exercising and sometime I listen while I am waiting to fall asleep...Read full review »

I love the man from homicide I wish you would play more of these shows
T2007B via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/31/18
OTR
So this is the first podcast I’ve heard believe it or not. I was looking for a radio show to play while I have the phone without the OTR app. Anyway I’ve been listening to them to get to sleep for about 50 years. Started with Jack Cullen at 11:05pm and so on. But like the idea of this format so...Read full review »

Oh Adam! This show is horrible! Of all the wonderful show to listen to, this one is not worth trying to get thru to the end. I would rather go back and listen to Dan and the wonderful lamp for the 100th time than even try and get to the end. I hate The Man from Homicide!
oh no Adam. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/18
I had to unsubscribe from all the podcasts from Adam not because of the stories, which are great- but because of his ongoing dialogue! I loved listening to the stories and the quality of these are great. However, the continual interjection of opinions and providing a recap of what was just...Read full review »

A few years ago I discovered the old time radio on Sirius, but then we got rid of that service and I didn’t have any more old time radio. I discovered podcasts and then this one. I love Adam’s commentary. It really sets this apart from all the other old time radio podcasts. This one is definitely...Read full review »

This is absolutely my favorite of the old time radio detective podcasts. The app is amazing and the best thing is that Adam plays the episodes in chronological order. You also get a taste of old tv and movies that correspond with some of the radio shows. The app is well worth the money. Adam also...Read full review »

I freaking love this! How cool is this to bring something back from the good old days? So awesome! Imagine how many people couldn’t wait to get home to listen to these stories? Ugh so in love and so happy I ran across this. Loveeeeeeee
RosieOldSchoolLovin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/18
Adam is a wonderful host. When I first got an I pod all those years ago, I signed up for the Dragnet podcast hosted by Adam. His broadcasting have greatly improved over the years. I was happy to sign up for the new Detective show. I really like how he brings his knowledge of history to the shows....Read full review »

Hey if you are just sick of listening to the same stuff on the radio same songs same formats looking for something more stimulating you have just found it.

Love all this stuff and I can definitely tell Adam loves it. I've been into old time radio since the late 90's, buying old shows on cd. Then, when the internet got big, and I could explore even more otr, I got real into Nightbeat but for 10 years, I could only find the same 10 episodes. Adam's...Read full review »

I spend quite a bit of time in my car for work and the combination of the original show and brief modern commentary in each episode makes it fun to drive to each location!
BetsyACC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/17
I’ve been listening for so long and Adam is the best host we could possibly hope for! Thanks Adam!!!
