The New Sherlock Holmes -- January 22, 2014

We saw back in September ( that Broadway actor Richard Gordon started playing Sherlock Holmes on the radio in 1930.  British actor Louis Hector took over the role when Gordon left because of "salary differences."  Recordings of some of Louis Hector's performances are available on The Great Detectives of Old Time Radio.  When I listened to "The Adventure of the Devil's Foot," I thought Hector sounded like WC Fields.  After, the host of the podcast said the same thing. 

The item is from the February, 1935 Radio Mirror
