Another old radio show with great intros is Broadway is My Beat. Listen to a few minutes of just about any show at the link, and you'll hear some of the best mood-setting purple prose around.

    Yes, a great intro. One of the best. But my all time favorite will always be Jack Webb's "Pat Novak for Hire."

  2. That's a great show, and it proves Webb could do comedy. I'll see if I can link some of those shows tomorrow.
