Welcome to the Golden Age of Radio and the best in classic mystery.
From 1939-1946 Americans gathered around their radio to listen to The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes -- featuring Basil Rathbone as the high-strung crime solver and Nigel Bruce as his phlegmatic assistant, Dr. Watson.
Witty, fast-paced and always surprising, these great radio plays, written by the prolific writing team of Anthony Boucher and Denis Green, are as fresh today as they were then.
The latest audio technology was employed to bring the best audio quality and fidelity to the original performances, which feature nostalgic wartime announcements, original commercials and radio narrations.

“Basil Rathbone’s Sherlock Holmes will be familiar from movies, and Nigel
Bruce makes a convincing, if intentionally dim, Dr. Watson. The stories
move along at a crisp pace, and the few sound effects and musical
transitions are simple, but smooth and convincing.”
