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!

Foreign correspondent Bob O'Hara searches the streets of Hong Kong for stories, but he plays detective as often as he plays newshound. Stacy Harris is front and center for international intrigue and danger in O'Hara, a short-lived mystery and adventure drama about a hard-boiled sleuth who happened to carry a press card. We'll hear him in "The Lost Boy," originally aired on CBS on October 29, 1956.
