Frist let me wish all of you Happy New Year. On the show this week we have detective story from the casebooks of Nick Carter.  Also, we will answer an email and will introduce a new segment called Tweets of the Week.

Our story comes from the OTR series Nick Carter Master Detective and will keep you guessing until that last minute. It was a Mutual Broadcasting Radio crime drama based on tales of the famed detective from Street and Smith's dime novels. The Nick Carter detective dramas were very popular and ran from 1943 to 1955 in various time slots. It stared Lon Clark as Nick. The episode we will listen to is #13, called the Echo of Death and first aired on July 7, 1943.

With the large number of people joining the show on twitter it did not make sense to continue to list names on the program.  If I had done that this week it would have been well over thirty names.  However, in my pledge to keep the show connected to twitter I have come up with, “Tweets of the Week”. Each week I will read these on the air. So, send your best and I will retweet it and then read it.

I did not think I was going to like this show. I was off, this is a great story. - Brian
