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!

Head back to the Great White Way and the crime behind the bright lights and buzz of the city in Broadway is My Beat. Detective Danny Clover walks “the gaudiest, the most violent, the lonesomest mile in the world” in two episodes of one of radio’s finest police procedurals. First, Anthony Ross stars as Clover in “The Fixed Prize Fight Case” (originally aired on CBS on March 27, 1949). Then, Larry Thor takes the lead in “The Georgia Gray Murder Case” (originally aired on CBS on April 28, 1951).
