From Steven Oney and the Cape Code Radio Mystery Theater we have a sort-of holiday themed offering that takes place in Victorian London during the brief period when a young Charles DIckens was a reporter.
"This radio whodunit has led some credulous listeners to believe that a real Ebenezer Scrooge existed and that he was the victim in a murder case at the Old Bailey Courthouse where his clerk, Bob Crachit, stood in the dock accused." And who better to defend him than the great barrister, Sir Percy Mason.

"This Perry Mason courtroom spoof has consistently ranked as a listener favorite, although a few have felt just the opposite, objecting to our tampering, however playfully, with Dickens’ beloved world masterpiece. The author partially agrees."
And selected short subjects from Big Fun Radio Funtime! of December 27, 2014. A Fearless Comedy Production.

From the Decoder Ring Theatre in Canada, we present the latest episode of Martin Bracknell's famous detective. It's the office of Jack Justice and Trixie Dixon, girl detective.
The most powerful man in town wants Jack and Trixie off the job they're working on, and he means right now, brother. Just one problem. They're pretty unemployed, even by their standards. This is going to get socially awkward, and then possibly dead, isn't it?

From ZBS. Saratoga Springs has an amazing history, the oldest racetrack in the country, the old gambling casinos, the spas and healing spring waters, and all those shady characters.
As a special bonus, the audio comes with a comic strip drawn by Genevieve Shapiro. Her wonderful cartoon style captures the elegance of the audio, it’s a great companion for the series.

Diamonds of Death, by Robert Leslie Bellem.
The first of the Pulp Radio series. Robert Leslie Bellem is known for his perhaps unwittingly colorful language and for being hugely prolific. This is one of around 300 stories with his best known detective, Dan Turner, the Hollywood private eye. Produced by Michael Packer and Sparks Media.
Mr. Chang Cages Rafferty, by A. E. Apple.
Continuing the Pulp Radio Series from Sparks Media. Tough detective Mr. Chang runs into prejudice at every turn. There was a general mistrust of the "yellow hoard" back in pulp magazine days. But he still goes after master criminal Rafferty. From Street and Smith's Detective Story Magazine in 1931.
February 8, 2015
The third from Pulp Radio. Detective Ed Noon takes on the case of a young woman found murdered. She's been dancing at a local club, so that's the place to start tracking down who killed her. Adapted by John Douglas.
Down Under Danger, by Philip Austin
Ostensibly written by Lem Potso, it's a story of Nick Danger in the days when Australia is just a tale people use to scare their children. Written especially for this series by the Firesign Theatre's Phil Austin. Which explains the surreal alternate world the story takes place in.
Coming to a Radio near you!
So Sound Affects brings you Detectives all this first quarter of 2015. Full of wonderful language that define the genre.
