Pete Kelly’s Blues
Pete Kelley Blues (1951) arrived on radio almost two years after Jack Webb reached stardom in Dragnet. All the Webb trademarks were here: the quips, the snappy comebacks, the short-tempered realism. Much of the show's appeal was in the music: Webb was a lifelong fan of hot jazz. This is one of Webb's best shows and the basis of his 1955 film of the same name.
