    Loved Dragnet, also Adam 12. I grew up in Studio City and they filmed Adam 12 all around that area. Watching re-runs is like going home to the '60s for me. I stood next to Jack Webb when he directed a scene from the Adam 12 pilot where Reed and Malloy chased the bad guys down into the wash. My brother is actually in the scene for a couple of frames where the cars go down the wash under a bridge, he and a buddy are leaning over the rail watching. Webb wasn't a complete hard-ass, he had a sense of humor.

    Lots of mp3 Dragnet radio episodes are available for free download at The Internet Archive. I listen to one during lunch most days. In one of them guys from a car club help Friday find a renegade driver that ran down a girl in a crosswalk.

    PS This is an early show. Later on they changed it to read "A Mark VII Production."

    Wanna hear something funny? I've got the copy of HRM that contains an article on the "Big Rod" episode, and in it, they show a picture of the real Wally Parks at the set--maybe he was too nervous and kept screwing up his nonexistent lines!

    What got me on the second incarnation of the show (1967-70) would be when he'd say something like, "It was June 12, it was hot in Los Angeles...." but he'd still be wearing the same sport coat that he wore when he said, "It was February 4, it was cool and damp in Los Angeles....".

    Back in the real days of hotrodding, when hotrod clubs were trying to improve the image and not trying to be "hoodlums", Jack Webb was a friend to the hobby and did a lot to help the NHRA get going.

    I love Daragnet. I watched the late 60's comeback of the show on TV when I was a kid and for the past 4 years I've listened to the old radio shows on XM Radio Classics. This was a cool episode. Jack Webb was a righteous dude!
