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!

When Londoners needed the help of Scotland Yard, they rang Whitehall 1212 and the hardworking coppers of the Yard were on the case. From 1951 to 1952, NBC presented a series of dramatizations of actual Scotland Yard cases starring British casts. We'll hear one of those mysteries - "The Case of the Late Mrs. Harvey," first aired on February 17, 1952.
