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!

A lawyer turned wartime spy turned post-war private eye, Frank Race traveled the world on investigations risking his life and limb for adventure. In a syndicated series, Race and his sidekick Mark Donovan foiled domestic and foreign evildoers in their travels as Race used his OSS training to stay a few moves ahead of his enemies. Specializing in insurance and fraud investigations, Race was in demand as an investigator - and frequently in danger from his investigations. Paul Dubov stars in The Adventures of Frank Race and the syndicated story "The Adventure of the Gold Worshiper."
