Listeners may find themselves caught in "driveway moments" while enjoying this new collection of stories featuring everyone's favorite radio detective. More than a series of jokes and puns, these philosophical ruminations on silliness are entertaining. It takes years of the actors working together for a presentation like this to work so effectively. These episodes employ a wonderful array of voices and special effects, led by the dulcet tones of the "Mark Twain of the Midwest," Garrison Keillor. As soon as you can, book a trip to the twelfth floor of the Acme Building and spend some time with Guy Noir, Private Eye.
