Saved From Oblivion – 21st Precinct (5/17/14)

26:55 – People ask me all the time, what’s my favorite old radio program after Vic and Sade?
It’s a fairly easy choice.  The 21st Precinct was a well-written and acted show from the 1950’s.  It’s similar to Dragnet but much better in almost every respect.
Every show began this way: 21st Precinct. It’s just lines on a map of the city of New York. Most of the 173,000 people wedged into the nine-tenths of a square mile between Fifth Avenue and the East River wouldn’t know, if you asked them, that they lived or worked in the 21st. Whether they know it or not, the security of their persons, their homes, and their property is the job of the men of the 21st.
