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!

Listen as the dedicated men and women of the Illustrated Press fight crime and corruption with the power of the press in Big Town. Edward Pawley is editor Steve Wilson and Fran Carlon is reporter Lorelei Kilbourne in one of radio’s longest-running and most popular newspaper dramas. Steve and Lorelei make the news as often as they report it, putting their lives on the line to chase down leads and bring the guilty to justice. We’ll hear them in “The Fatal Chain,” originally aired on NBC on November 7, 1948.
