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!

Erle Stanley Gardner, the creator of Perry Mason, brings you A Life in Your Hands – a courtroom mystery drama that puts you in the middle of a murder trial. Follow Jonathan Kegg – neither prosecutor nor defense lawyer, but amicus curiae – an impartial observer dedicated to finding the truth. Kegg questions witnesses on both sides to ensure that the truth comes out and to see that justice is done. Carlton KaDell plays Kegg in “Judge Cook Shot,” originally aired on NBC on August 29, 1950.
