"Always ready with a hand for oppressed men, and an eye for repressed women."
Michael Waring is the freelance investigator, troubleshooter, and adventurer known to one and all as The Falcon. One part The Saint, one part Boston Blackie, and one part Philip Marlowe - Waring can be suave and charming, especially when a lady is involved. But, there's never any doubt about his nail-spitting toughness, nor of his impatience with the plodding methods of the police - most often expressed in an endless stream of clenched-teeth wisecracks.
Les Damon brings an ever-so-slightly-world-weary tone to the title character in 15 of these digitally remastered and restored radio episodes, with James Meighan making one appearance as The Falcon. Also heard in these broadcasts is radio regular Jackson Beck and announcer Ed Herlihy.
This collection of the quintessential 1940s hardboiled hero comes complete with a Program Guide by radio historian Elizabeth McLeod with photos and background information about the show.
