Small House of Everything

"Philo Vance needs a kick in the pance."  Thus was the snobbiest of Golden Age detectives described by Ogden Nash.   Hard to believe, but there was a time when S.S. van Dine's sleuth was one of the most popular fictional detectives in the world.  He's still fun to read (in moderate doses, IMHO).  And he's still fun to listen to (Again, in moderate doses.)'s a passel of episodes from the 1948-1950 radio series starring Jackson Beck as Vance.  Pick an episode and enjoy,
