Part 1 of the Calling All Cars series.

							Radio played a part in stemming the tide against crime - and never more so than  in 'Calling All Cars', one of the earliest and most durable police procedural  shows. In this first volume, dramatizing true crime exploits, and introduced by  real-life law enforcement officials, 'Calling All Cars' offered listeners the  gritty details of criminal activities in true 'ripped from the headlines'  style. Led by writer/director William N. Robson offered listeners the audio  equivalent of a Warner Brothers crime drama. Kidnappings, petty thefts, prison  breaks, bunco schemes...all were raw materials for the creators of each show  and details of these crimes were used as the basis for the realistic dramas  being presented in volume one of Calling All Cars.  Episodes include: The Laughing Killer, Desertion Leads to Murder, Ransom Ring,  The Ice House Murder, John Doe Number Seventy One, The Disappearing Scar, The  Bamboo Snake, The Case of the Broken Xylophone, True Confession, The Case of  the One-Pound Note, The Case
