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!

We head back to London for another mystery from Scotland Yard and a dangerous, relentless Pursuit. This series let listeners join in on the game of cat and mouse between cop and criminal – “when man hunts man.” Ben Wright stars as the dogged Inspector Peter Black, hot on the heels of England’s most dastardly criminals. We’ll hear him on the job in “Pursuit of the Asiatic Killer,” first aired on CBS on March 11, 1952.
