Jack Webb drawing by Bobb Lynes
I obtained that information from Jack Webb's copy of the first script, which is housed at UCLA's Special Collections department.
Webb was working at KGO - the ABC station, and King was employed at NBC's KPO:
At one point, I had to sign on the NBC net in the morning and Jack Webb had to sign on ABC. The booths were back to back. At any rate, Jack was always late… so I would sign on for NBC, run right next door to do the same for ABC, then dash right back to NBC. I really didn't mind, because Jack and I were friends, and I knew it was his habit to show up a few minutes late."
Webb was never one to forget a friend... so once both men were settled in Los Angeles, it was natural that he would invite King to participate in "Dragnet. Says King, "Jack asked me to do the initial voice on the audition.
Jack said that was exactly what he was looking for."
Jack Webb drawing by Bobb Lynes On June 3 1949, Webb, Barton Yarborough, Charles McGraw, Barney Phillips, Jack Petruzzi, David Wolfe, Peggy Webber, Herb Ellis and Harry Bartell filed into NBC's Hollywood studios to perform in the very first "Dragnet.
In fact, the show was owned by Webb's agent, George Rosenberg, but even so, NBC had more say than Webb at this stage. The following week, Frank Barton came aboard to speak King's original lines, while Hal Gibney said "Dragnet! to NBC's - and Webb's - satisfaction.
King and Jack Webb remained friends, and even shared an apartment during one of Webb's periodic separations from his wife, Julie London.
"I have wonderful memories of those days at the apartment with Jack," says King.
"I had a little record player, and it turned out that Jack was a jazz buff.
