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!

The Mollé Mystery Theatre presented adaptations of classic mystery stories as well as original thrillers in one of radio's best mystery anthologies. Sponsored by the "smooth smooth slick slick shave you get" with Mollé brushless shaving cream, Bernard Lenrow is on hand as cultured criminologist Geoffrey Barnes, your host and narrator through the world of murder and mayhem. We'll hear "Red Wine," adapted for the Theatre and originally aired on NBC on March 8, 1946.
