It’s time to deck the halls with three radio detectives in the “Down These Mean Streets” holiday special. First, Frank Sinatra is Rocky Fortune in “The Plot to Murder Santa Claus” (first aired on NBC on December 22, 1953). Then, Ranger Jayce Pearson (Joel McCrea) finds a “Christmas Present” on Tales of the Texas Rangers (first aired on NBC on December 24, 1950). Finally, Sgt. Joe Friday (Jack Webb) is on the hunt for “The Big Little Jesus” in Dragnet (first aired on NBC on December 22, 1953).
