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!

Academy Award-winning actress Mercedes McCambridge stars as Marty Bryant – a lawyer and detective in the vein of Perry Mason – ready to stand before judge and jury to advocate for her clients. We’ll hear one of her radio cases - “Client Mike Pelley” (originally aired on ABC on August 31, 1951).
