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 the fall of 1950, with Vincent Price waylaid in Paris, Barry Sullivan stepped into the shoes of Simon Templar for two episodes of The Saint. The big screen star ably wore the halo as the Robin Hood of modern crime. We'll hear him in "The Ghost that Giggled" (originally aired on NBC on September 10, 1950) and "Dossier on a Doggone Dog" (originally aired on September 17, 1950).
