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!

Radio detectives don't come more hard-boiled than Pat Novak For Hire.  Jack Webb stars in one of his first big radio hits as a character who is anything but Joe Friday.  We'll hear "Sam Tolliver," originally broadcast on ABC on April 23, 1949.
