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!

Radio's crusading prosecutor Mr. District Attorney fought crime on the air for over a decade. The upstanding public servant went after killers, con men, thieves, and enemy agents with equal passion and zeal for the law. We'll hear a pair of his radio adventures: Jay Jostyn stars in "The Case of the Sinister Cinema," originally aired on NBC on May 5, 1948. Then, David Brian stars in the syndicated episode "The Case of the Missing Corpse."
