Dragnet was created and produced by Jack Webb, who starred as the terse Sgt. Friday. Webb had starred in a few mostly short-lived radio programs, but Dragnet would make him one of the major media personalities of his era.Webb was a stickler for accurate details, and Dragnet used many authentic touches, such as the LAPD's actual radio call sign (KMA-367), and the names of many real department officials, such as Ray Pinker and Lee Jones of the crime lab or Chief of Detectives Thad Brown. Dragnet was perhaps the most famous and influential police procedural drama in American media history. The series gave millions of Americans a feel for the boredom and drudgery, as well as the danger and heroism, of real-life police work. Dragnet earned praise for improving the public opinion of police officers. Actor and producer Jack Webbâs aims in Dragnet were for realism and unpretentious acting. He achieved both goals, and Dragnet remains a key influence on subsequent police dramas in many media. The shows cultural impact is demonstrated by the fact that even after five decades, elements of Dragnet are known to those who've never seen or heard the program.

Customer Reviews

Classic, classic radio police procedural!

This is great radio. Jack Webb is at his business-like best, the cases are gritty and the production values are excellent. The only downside is the phoney accent of the "non-Harry Morgan" sidekick. That's irritating, but the show is strong enough to be well worth listening to anyway--highly recommended.

More frequent updates?

For a while, this podcast was a personal favorite. The episodes were delivered on a timely basis and the recordings were pretty clean transfers. Dragnet is one of my favorite police procedurals, so I was thrilled to get to hear it again, presented in a no-nonsense manner. There hasn't been a new episode of the podcast released since September, though. Are there plans to continue running this show, or has Humphrey Camardella Productions decided to let this one go? I'm going to keep the feed for a while longer, but if there isn't an update soon, I'll have to find a new resource for getting this classic.


I really love this podcast. It cheers me up and more than anything it gets me in a suspenseful mood. It is fun and entertaining listening to these. They do not take up a lot of memory and are all 30 min. long. Great for kids and adults. The only problem is that they have stopped coming, I would love for them to start up again. It is an absolute "bear necessity" for all radio lovers!
