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!

In October 1930, Sherlock Holmes began his long career as a radio sleuth. In honor of the great detective's anniversary on the airwaves, we'll hear two of his adventures with John Stanley as Holmes and Alfred Shirley as Dr. John Watson. The game's afoot in "The Case of the Well-Staged Murder" (originally aired on Mutual on November 16, 1947) and "Death is a Golden Arrow" (originally aired on Mutual on March 21, 1948).
