Welcome to Down These Mean Streets, a weekly trip back to the Golden Age of Radio where we rub elbows with the era's greatest private eyes, cops, and crime-fighters. Since 2013, I've been podcasting everything from cozy mysteries to police procedurals, spotlighting characters ranging from hard boiled gumshoes to amateur sleuths. 

Be sure to tune in each Sunday for adventures of a radio detective and the behind-the-scenes stories of their shows. Join me as we spend time with Sam Spade, Johnny Dollar, Sgt. Joe Friday, and more!

This week, we'll walk the streets of Chicago after dark, tagging along with Frank Lovejoy on Night Beat.  Lovejoy stars as reporter Randy Stone, who searches for human interest stories in the darkness and often finds trouble.  We'll hear "The Football Player and the Syndicate," first broadcast on NBC on June 12, 1950.
