Frank Sinatra trades crooning for crime solving as Rocky Fortune. For a single season, Old Blue Eyes starred as Rocky, a footloose, fancy-free, and frequently unemployed young man whose weekly search for a job results in full-time employment with dangerous adventure. It was Sinatra's only regular dramatic role on radio, and the Chairman of the Board is in fine form in three radio mysteries: "Messenger for Death" (originally aired on NBC on November 10, 1953); "The Rodeo Murder" (originally aired on NBC on January 12, 1954); and "The Museum Murder" (originally aired on NBC on January 19, 1954).

Do you enjoy being transported to another time? Old time radio is a great way to do this. Listen to the masters of audio story telling weave an image of old times in your mind as you are transported to the mean streets where the action happens. The host does an excellent intro then let's the magic begin. Great way to spend some time. Highly recommended.
