Description

Apps Station is releasing another great radio show based on the stories of Sherlock Holmes.

The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes was an old-time radio show which aired in the USA from October 2, 1939 to July 7, 1947. The show first aired on the Blue Network but later moved to the Mutual Broadcasting System. The radio stories were action packed, filled with atmosphere, and featured great music by Lou Kosloff, as well as excellent sound effects.

Originally, the show starred Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson. Together, they starred in 220 episodes which aired weekly on Mondays from 8:30 to 9:00pm. Commercialism seeped into the radio show from the start, as Watson himself, played by various actors, took on the co-host role with a spokesman for G. Washington Tea as a visitor ready to hear a Holmes story. Before a blazing fire with tea always at the brew, Watson reminiscences the great tales between comments on how good the tea is! Bromo Quinine sponsored some of the earlier programs on the Blue Network and for a period Parker Pen was the sponsor.

Basil Rathbone's last episode as the famous detective was "The Singular Affair of the Baconian Cipher." He was eager to separate himself from the cast type of Holmes, and even though the show's sponsor Petri Wine offered him generous pay to continue, he decided to move on. Once he did, the sponsor did as well, and Tom Conway took the starring role, though Nigel Bruce got top billing and was always announced first. The new sponsor was Kreml Hair Tonic for Men, and the new series only lasted 39 episodes.

In 1955, National Broadcasting Company re-ran the transcribed BB series of the original great Conan Doyle stories with the fine actors Sir John Gielgud as Holmes, and Sir Ralph Richardson as Watson, and in "The Final Problem," Orson Welles as Moriarty.

Worthless

It requires registration, and as if that weren't infuriating enough, it doesn't even allow registration. It keeps prompting me to check my email address, and when I click OK, it still takes me back to edit it and won't go beyond that.

I loved the previous app- worked flawlessly. Unfortunately, I have Issues with the new one. Audio stops and cannot continue from that location.

Terrible

Under the old app I could listen to all the Sherlock Holmes shows know it wants me to pay again for them. Also the playback is choppy, hard to hear and static.
