Listen to Sam Spade: The Vaphio Cup Caper

This week's story has deliberate echoes of The Maltese Falcon. Sometime in the near future (maybe in December when the NaNoWriMo madness has passed) I'll dig out my box of old OTR tapes and present the one true sequel to the Falcon, a full hour Suspense broadcast called "The Khandi Tooth Caper". Gutman, Cairo and the gang are back, this time hunting the tooth, and one-time Philip Marlowe Robert Montgomery is on hand to introduce the show. Great stuff.

Today's episode has an added treat. For the first time in our series, you'll hear The Wildroot Singers belt out that immortal ditty, "Get Wildroot Cream-Oil, Charlie". It's at the end of Part 4.
