This is Your FBI
The 1945-53 officially backed radio series (the first episode includes an appearance by FBI director J. Edgar Hoover) detailing real life cases from the files of the FBI.
This recording is part of the Old Time Radio collection.
Shotgun equals maching gun
Just started listening to the series. Shotgun Kelly is an alias for Machinegun Kelly. The story, with some obvious modification, parallels the lore behind the "G-men" title. As the myth goes, Kelly was captured in the same way and uttered the same phrase when captured. Is it true? Who knows but it makes a great story. Three stars so far. Might rate again later. My rating hasn't changed but I noticed a few of their cases involved counterfeiting. Isn't that something the Secret Service handle?
Its about time that The FBI comes to Archive.org's OTR!!
This really is a great crime show, and in my opinion is just as effective as Dragnet. Thanks against Adamelijah for uppin' this fantastic show to this fantastic website. Long live Archive.org's OTR Section.
Great stories but sad when you remind yourself that they actually happened. Personally, I could do without the propaganda though I appreciate that it comes on the heels of WWII. I really like how Harris plays his role.
A Great Series, except . . .
A truly enjoyable series, except for one thing: EVERY episode ends with the FBI agents arriving just in time to save the day! That's pushing credulity just a little too far.
These are awesome
Put on your earbuds, start This Is Your FBI and do your homework, ride the train or even listen to it in bed. Good audio on the episodes Ive heard so far.
In "Honest Embezzler" they say next week's episode is "The Fixed Election". However, that episode doesn't show up in the OTRR inventory. Perhaps it is on YouTube.
He was prissy, and feared in DC for what he knew of the politicos—people hated him; but I've never heard anyone say he was stupid
