In 1950, NBC began broadcasting Nightbeat, considered one of the finest shows of its time. The show featured Randy Stone, a reporter who covered the night beat for the Chicago Star with a unique blend of wit, compassion and toughness. From murder to mystery, gunplay to climactic chases, from heartache to hardboiled, every night brought a new story to Randy Stone and he would be drawn in - eager to see them, hear them, live them, and record them. Nightbeat was more than a crime drama. It was a human drama.
Radio Archives invites you to return to the streets of Randy Stone's Chicago in Nightbeat: Night Stories. Six brand new Nightbeat stories are now available in this beautifully formatted eBook. Authors Howard Hopkins, Will Murray, Paul Bishop, Mark Squirek, Bobby Nash and Tommy Hancock breathe new life into Randy Stone, bringing the nostalgic noir feel of the radio series fans have enjoyed for over sixty years to newly written tales that capture the true essence of Nightbeat. A mystery involving a puzzle. A mad killer strangling women. A young boy on the wrong road. An old flame threatening to burn again. Blood and conspiracy in the boxing ring. The murder of a reporter. And at the center of every tale, Randy Stone. This nostalgic newly written collection issued for your reading pleasure in electronic format features an original oil painting cover by Douglas Klauba. $2.99.

A little over a year ago I ordered the first thirteen volumes of the Fibber McGee Lost Episodes (cd version) from your site. I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed listening to them. The sound quality is exceptional and I am very pleased with the purchase. Just this morning I ordered Volume 14 as well as the first three complete seasons that you are now offering. I was really hoping that your site would begin to release the full seasons and I will be purchasing any/all future seasons that become available on your site. Please keep up the wonderful work that you are doing. These radio shows are a treasure and I am grateful to have your company to do business with. Take care.
