Welcome to Two Fisted Tuesdays, Dieselpunks' weekly beat on the mean streets.
We're listening to The Adventures of Philip Marlowe
until we either run out of ammo or until poor Philip lays down for the big sleep.
Starring Gerald Mohr and starting with the famous lines, "Get this and get it straight! Crime is a sucker's road and those who travel it wind up in the gutter, the prison or the grave. There's no other way, but they never learn." The Adventures of Philip Marlowe
runs about 25 minutes without commercials.
