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!

It's another adventure of Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe, and one that features both of the actors who starred as Marlowe in weekly radio series: Van Heflin and Gerald Mohr.  Heflin is Marlowe and Mohr is the title character in an adaptation of Chandler's "The King in Yellow," originally aired on NBC on July 8, 1947.
