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!

To celebrate the birthday of Alfred Hitchcock, we present a bonus episode of "Down These Mean Streets" dedicated to the big screen master of suspense. We'll hear a radio recreation of his classic film Strangers On a Train. Ray Milland and Frank Lovejoy step into the lead parts of Guy Haines and Bruno Antony, with Ruth Roman and Patricia Hitchcock recreating their movie roles in this rehearsal for the December 3, 1951 broadcast from the Lux Radio Theatre.
