EPISODE DESCRIPTION
The Big Sophomore (Aired July 19, 1951)
Friday’s first partner was Sgt. Ben Romero, portrayed by Barton Yarborough, a longtime radio actor. When Dragnet hit its stride, it became one of radio’s top-rated shows. While most radio shows used one or two sound effects experts, Dragnet needed five; a script clocking in at just under 30 minutes could require up to 300 separate effects. Accuracy was underlined: The exact number of footsteps from one room to another at Los Angeles police headquarters were imitated, and when a telephone rang at Friday’s desk, the listener heard the same ring as the telephones in Los Angeles police headquarters. While Friday and others investigate bloodstains in a suburban backyard, the listener hears a series of overlapping effects: a squeaking gate hinge, footsteps, a technician scraping blood into a paper envelope, the glassy chime of chemical vials, bird calls and a dog barking in the distance. THIS EPISODE: July 19, 1951. Program #110. NBC network. "The Big Sophomore". Sponsored by: Fatima. A young boy named Harry Dunbar admits a series of petty thefts, but is reluctant to explains his reasons. Jack Webb, Barton Yarborough. 30:49. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
