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!

Pam and Jerry North are the happy couple who can’t help but find trouble. Whether it’s a corpse or a caper, Mr. and Mrs. North will stumble onto the scene and thwart the plans of evildoers everywhere. We’ll hear a pair of adventures starring old time radio’s most popular husband and wife detective duos. First, Alice Frost is Pam and Joseph Curtin is Jerry in “The Contagious Confession” (originally aired on NBC on September 22, 1943). Then, the Norths are played by Barbara Britton and Richard Denning in “The Diamond Noose” (a broadcast from the Armed Forces Radio Service).
