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!

The Line-Up, one of radio's finest police procedurals, takes listeners behind the scenes of the San Francisco Police Department as its determined detectives track down criminals and close cases.  Bill Johnstone stars as Lt. Ben Guthrie, with Jack Moyles as Sgt. Pete Carger in "Singer's Husband Killed," first broadcast on CBS on July 1, 1952.
