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!

Larry Thor stars as Detective Danny Clover as he walks “the gaudiest, the most violent, the lonesomest mile in the world” in Broadway is My Beat. We'll hear Clover keep the streets of New York safe in two old time radio mysteries. First, it's "The Suicide Pact Murders" (originally aired on CBS on August 21, 1950). Then, we'll hear "The Harry Foster Murder Case" (originally aired on CBS on May 5, 1951).
