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!

William Gargan played several detectives on radio and television, and he could draw from his real-life experience as a private eye for his characters.  This week, we'll hear Gargan star as Barrie Craig, Confidential Investigator in "Blood Money," first broadcast on NBC on August 2, 1954.
