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!

For this bonus show, I'm sharing my five favorite old time radio adventures of Simon Templar - "the Robin Hood of modern crime" best known as The Saint. We'll hear Vincent Price as the Saint in "The Sinister Sneeze" (originally aired on NBC on June 11, 1950); "Baseball Murder" (originally aired on NBC on September 3, 1950); "No Hiding Place" (originally aired on NBC on November 19, 1950); and "The Big Swindle" (originally aired on NBC on February 25, 1951). We'll also hear substitute Saint Barry Sullivan in "The Ghost that Giggled" (originally aired on NBC oN September 17, 1950).
