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!

In honor of Alfred Hitchcock's birthday, "Down These Mean Streets" presents a bonus episode saluting the big screen's auteur of thrills and chills. We'll hear an on-air recreation of Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt, featuring Joseph Cotten in his big screen role. It originally aired on Academy Award on CBS on September 11, 1946.
