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!

Alan Ladd stars as mystery writer (and amateur sleuth) Dan Holiday in Box 13.  Join him as he seeks inspiration for his novels, and usually gets more than he bargained for in the process.  Today, we'll hear "Speed to Burn," an episode of this syndicated series from 1948.
