San Francisco, Jack Webb Style!

Before becoming famous for the portrayal of Joe Friday in "Dragnet", Jack Webb starred in "Johnny Madero, Pier 23", an off-beat action show originating in San Francisco. If you live in "The City", as we humbly call it, or know San Francisco well, you'll find a lot of the one-liners as funny today as they were almost 50 years ago (yes, he's a wise cracking hero in this show!). If you're completely clueless about San Francisco and it's history, don't worry, they're still quite enjoyable anyway, and these encodes of the three surviving episodes are all over 20MBs each, so the sound quality is pretty darn good. Just don't call it Frisco, and don't say anything bad about Joe DiMaggio and we'll get along fine.......
