This is detective week here at Ron’s Amazing Stories and I thought it might be fun to have a cops and robbers double header. That’s right we have two OTR stories for the price of one. Also, on this episode we pay tribute to one of America's top 100 songs of the last 100 years.

Our OTR Story - Cops and Robbers

CBS radio Workshop wanted to mix reality with fiction. They took retired detectives and put them together with seasoned radio actors. The result is what you will hear.

It does offer some revealing insights into real-life policing methods (of the 1950s anyway).  The Story is called Cops and Robbers it originally aired on March 16, 1956.
