Radio Archives has announced the release of Nightbeat: Night Stories, a collection of six stories based on the Old Time Radio series Nightbeat, which starred Frank Lovejoy as Randy Stone, a reporter who works the night beat for The Chicago Star.
I’m excited to be part of this new anthology collection, which is available for purchase now as an ebook (Kindle, Nook, iTunes and RadioArchives.com) and as an audio book. This is my first story to be turned into an audio book so I’m doubly excited and eager to hear it performed by the talented Michael C. Gwynne.

In 1950, NBC began broadcasting Nightbeat, considered one of the finest shows of its time. The show featured Randy Stone, a reporter who covered the night beat for the Chicago Star with a unique blend of wit, compassion and toughness.
Radio Archives invites you to return to the streets of Randy Stone's Chicago in Nightbeat: Night Stories. Six brand new Nightbeat stories are now available in both Ebook and Audiobook format. Authors Howard Hopkins, William Patrick Murray, Paul Bishop, Bobby Nash, Tommy Hancock, and Mark Squirek breathe new life into Randy Stone, bringing the nostalgic noir feel of the radio series fans have enjoyed for over sixty years to newly written tales that capture the true essence of Nightbeat.
