    very funny, well acted, with excellent sound effects

    This series (sadly, so far, there are no more) along with Guy Noir Private Eye, are very funny. They are well acted, with excellent sound effects, and neat music. Gives an old time radio feel, think, Green Hornet, Dick Tracy [on radio] and others.

    GOOD, SMILE-PROVOKING LISTENING

    What great, good, smile provoking fun! Fans of Garrison Keillor and a Prairie Home Companion will thoroughly enjoy this 11 episode collection of detective stories originally heard in live broadcast. If you missed these sketches on the radio, not to worry - now you can meet Guy, the intrepid gumshoe who chases crime from St. Paul. Sam Spade and Hercule Poirot would duck their heads in shame to learn of Guy's exploits. After all, he never knows whether the knock on his door means a fish has been filched or Henry Kissinger needs help. In this parody on the old-time private eyes, we can't resist the guy or Guy who keeps his vigil on 'A dark night in a city that knows how to keep its secrets but high above the empty streets, on the 12th floor of the Acme building, one man is still trying to find the answers to life's persistent questions.' Keillor is supported by members of the Prairie Home companion cast, thus 'Guy Noir' is a terrific ensemble performance. Among the sketches are Gotham Gets The Girl Operator Bad Grits Gotta Go Bad Blood Picnic Plaid Movie Shoot Hotdish Hangover Renata Flambe Snow Job Missing Fish. Very highly recommended - don't miss it! - Gail Cooke
