Anything can happen when the Santa Anna blows in from the desert to the City of Angels – join detective Philip Marlowe as the trail of a beautiful, mysterious woman leads him into danger on the mean streets of 1940s Red Wind.

Then, the game is afoot as we join Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson on their most perilous adventure as they investigate murder and mayhem in North Africa in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: Murder in the Casbah – first broadcast in December 1945. A live performance of plays from the Golden Age of Radio.
