صبر کن

Author: زهره زاهدی Narrator: زهره زاهدی Release Date: April 2020

در شبی شفاف و پر ستاره اگر به دوردست‌های آسمان خیره شوی و مدتی ذهنت را متمرکز یافتنش کنی، عاقبت ستاره کوچک و درخشانی چشمک می‌زند که: من اینجا هستم. اگر توانستی آن ستاره را به وضوح ببینی، شک نکن که او را یافته‌ای. آن وقت کافی است که صبور باشی و منتظر بمانی. در شبی یا روزی، یا لحظه‌ای که اصلا انتظارش را نداری، جوری که تصورش را هم نکرده‌ای او از راه خواهد رسید. با محبت و صداقت در چشمت نگاه خواهد کرد و نگاهش در نگاه متحیر تو گره خواهد خورد. بی‌تردید او را از نگاهش و از بالا رفتن ضربان قلب خودت خواهی شناخت. آنوقت دنیا مال تو خواهد شد. شادی که جای خود دارد، حتی رنج کشیدن هم مزه دیگری خواهد یافت.

Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar, Volume 5 Audiobook

Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar, Volume 5

Author: Various Narrator: An Ensemble Cast Release Date: March 2016

Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar, Volume 5 was a typical slam-bang detective series and though consistently well written and acted, the series never really captured an enthusiastic audience. However, in the fall of 1955, Bob Bailey took over the title role, veteran director Jack Johnstone and writers John Dawson, Robert Ryf, and Les Crutchfield joined the production team, and the series was transformed into a quarter hour, five-a-week strip show. The result was a rebirth for America's favorite freelance insurance investigator, as Bailey assumed the role of a lifetime, the writers had the chance to develop the depth of the stories, and the new cliffhanging nature of the series made radio's dwindling listening audience want to tune in day after day. Chapters: #1 The Open Town Matter #2 The Alder Matter #3 The Crystal Lake Cabin Matter #4 The Curse of Kamashek Matter #5 The Confidential Matter #6 The Meg's Palace Matter #7 The Picture Postcard Matter #8 The Primrose Matter #9 The Phantom Chase Matt

Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar, Collection 1 Audiobook

Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar, Collection 1

Author: Black Eye Entertainment Narrator: Full Cast Release Date: September 2017

First heard on network radio in 1948, Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar chronicled the adventures of freelance insurance investigator Johnny Dollar, "the man with the action-packed expense account." For 15 years, it was one of the most popular detective shows on the air, lasting until the final days of network radio drama in 1962. Each story started with a phone call from an insurance executive calling on Johnny Dollar to investigate an unusual claim. His investigations usually required Dollar to travel to distant locales and often involved murder. The stories were recounted in flashback, as Dollar listed each line item from his expense account: "Item one, $3.75 cab fare to the airport." Over the years, many actors portrayed Johnny Dollar, including Charles Russell, John Lund and Edmund O'Brien but in 1955, Bob Bailey, took over as the series was switching to a new dynamic format of 75-minute storylines told in five, 15-minute installments Monday-thru-Friday. While other radio shows were waning in the mid 1950s, Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar was at its peak. Experts include these 75-minute adventures as the best of the best from radio's golden age. 5/14/56 through 5/18/56 The Medium Well Done Matter5/21/56 through 5/25/56 The Tears of Night Matter5/28/56 through 6/1/56 The Reasonable Doubt Matter6/4/56 through 6/8/56 The Indestructible Mike Matter6/11/56 through 6/15/56 The Laughing Matter6/18/56 through 6/22/56 The Pearling Matter
