Format: Paperback
With all the sex, violence, and computer graphics that seem to be a prerequisite for today's movies, don't you yearn for the quality drama and comedy we used to enjoy on the radio of our childhood? This book fills the bill beautifully. Its "episodes" are written in short-story format, but it allows us to experience again Jack Benny and his vault, Sherlock Holmes on the case (with Tom Mix, of all people, for a partner!), the Cisco Kid and Pancho as they cleverly catch the bad guys, and Chandu the Magician using his super skills to solve the mystery.

They say you can't go home again, but this sure comes close!

As a contributor to this volume, the fairest way I can review this is to begin with the concept. Old-Time Radio is both long-gone and still with us: there are many collectors of the old shows, and many of the shows are in circulation today, both as tapes and digital recordings using various techniques. Prior to the advent of widespread broadcast television, radio was the dominant entertainment medium in the United States.

To appreciate any of the "It's That Time Again" series, it's far better to have heard at least some of the shows beforehand. Most of the stories stand on their own, but a familiarity with the shows makes some of the references more understandable.

Volume 4 of the series is the "Mysteries" volume, where the radio personalities are each faced with a puzzle -- often a killing -- which they have to solve. A lot of the old dramas were mysteries anyway, so some of the stories are normal fare for their program.

The book is very good for those who heard the old shows, whether in the pre-television days, or more recently. However, many of the mysteries stand on their own, and even those who have never heard any of the old shows should find the stories interesting.

Each of the 17 original stories in this amazing collection will be a treat to any die-hard OTR fan, but several for me really stood out including:

SHERLOCK HOLMES OUT WEST by editor and Old Radio guru, Jim Harmon, gives the reader the great detective teaming up with Tom Mix to solve a mystery;

A LITTLE JUSTICE by Robert C. Reinehr, presents an adventure of Charlie Wild, and while I've never heard one of these radio shows, this story was outstanding all on its own, and packs a wallop of a great ending, and several good red herrings as well.

THE MYSTERY OF JACK BENNY's VAULT by Dashiell X. Doyle--I was very skeptical of a short story version of the Jack Benny show, but the writer does a great job of conveying the nebulous world of the great radio comedian's, and pulling off some clever gags very much in the zany spirit of the show--Lots of fun.

The stories by Jack French, William F. Nolan, and Barbara Gratz also come to my mind, but as I said each one of the stories in this inventive collection has something to recommend it, and whether he read it from cover to cover, or peruse it out of order, you'll have a great time reading this collection. Supposedly it's #4, I'm going to have to rout around for one, two, and three now.

I have all 4 of the "It's That Time Again" series. And I really feel this one is best. Edited by Jim Harmon ("The Great Radio Heros", "The Great Radio Comedians" and several other OTR books), his story of "Sherlock Holmes Out West" in which he meets Tom Mix for the 2nd time (met him in one of the previous editions) is so much like the Tom MIx radios shows, it's eerie.

Speaking of eerie, William F. Nolan's "Lights Out" story is even more so. You really don't see the teeth coming...(oops!)

Many more of your faves found their way into this volume. Captain Midnight, Chandu the Magician, Cisco Kid (Aye Pancho!), the REAL story of Mr. District Attorney, Jack Benny and Escape to name only a few.

I truly could find NO fault with this volume, more than I could say for the 1st one. In spite of that, I hightly recommend all 4 volumes if you an OTR fan. And if you are not, even if you have NO idea what Murder At Midnight means or who Johnny Dollar was or how Mr. Keen traced lost persons, buy 'em and you'll find out!
