    1. This book makes for a terrific companion reference tome if you're on a marathon listening binge of the classic Dragnet radio shows -as I am- this is an essential book to own.If you're a fan of the original '50s tv series with Ben Alexander as "Frank Smith" or a fan of the Dragnet series most of us grew up with in the late 1960s with Harry Morgan as "Frank Gannon", it's a must have.The original Dragnet tv series of the 1950s was as noir as classic tv ever got.Really tough material.The radio serie [...]


    2. My Name's Friday is an enjoyable romp through the world of Jack Webb.

    3. -----------Greatly superior in organization and analysis to Just the Facts, Ma'am, this book does well both discussing Jack Webb and Dragnet, and the love-hate relationship they had with each other. With lots of examples from the various scripts Webb wrote or oversaw, the book provides a solid guide to the man and his works, and is a must-read for anyone who is interested in either.Hayde’s work is organized well and chronologically. All of Webb’s works, including the different renditions of [...]


    4. Loving the series Dragnet is really against my nature being that it is very in favor of "The Man" or status quo as it were but I just can't help it I love both the old old radio show of it and the 1950's and 1960's TV show shows. This book really help explain who jack Webb (the star of show and it creator producer and writer) was, this book was really interesting.


    5. A friend asked me to elaborate a bit on this so I will. This is basically a hybrid between a well researched episode guide and a quasi biography. Hayde does provide a context for Dragnet in its various incarnations and he does write about some of the other projects Webb was involved in. It's fine for what it is, but if you're looking for an actual biography of Webb, this is not it.
