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 Robin Hood of modern crime” is on the case, and the halo of The Saint is hanging over Vincent Price’s head. Price stars as Simon Templar in three old time radio adventures of Leslie Charteris’ gentleman sleuth: “Murder on the High Seas” (originally aired on Mutual on September 18, 1949); “It’s Snow Use” (originally aired on NBC on October 29, 1950); and “The Terrible Tintype” (originally aired on NBC on November 26, 1950).
