Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Last night I read a short story by Ken Greenwald, an adaptation of Denis Green and Anthony Boucher's radio script "The April Fool's Day Adventure," first aired on the April 1 (naturally), 1946 episode of Mutual Radio's The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.  The story -- plot and twist ending provided by Boucher; background and most of the dialogue by Green -- was based on an incident alluded to in Conan Doyle's A Study in Scarlet.  The story took us back to those erly days when Doyle and Dr. Watson were just getting acquainted and set the scene for some of Holme's best-known adventures.

After reading the story, I had to look up the original broadcast in order to share it with you.

Relax, travel back to the timeless London of the world's greatest consulting detective, and enjoy the marvelous voices of Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce.
