Part 3 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.

Fire!, Murder for Insurance, Lieutenant  Hugh Crowley Murder, Catching the Louse Kid,  Invitation to Murder, Paroled!,  The Corpse by the Road, The
