Happy birthday, Jack Webb.

Sgt. Joe Friday, also the creator of Emergency! and Adam-12, would have turned 87 today. In Webb's honor, today's "It's a Mystery" featured a radio production of Dragnet, two Dragnet parodies, and Webb's rendition of "Try a Little Tenderness." To listen to Bob Hope and Webb's 1953 parody of Dragnet, go here.

Webb was great as Pat Novak on radio, too.
