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!

We celebrate the birthday of the legendary Orson Welles with his radio version of Agatha Christie's classic mystery The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. Adapted for the dramatic anthology series The Campbell Playhouse, it stars Welles as both the story's narrator and as Christie's celebrated sleuth Hercule Poirot. This twisted tale brought to life by Orson Welles and a talented supporting cast originally aired on CBS on November 12, 1939.
