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!

"Down These Mean Streets" wraps up 2013 with an hour of holiday adventures from two old time radio detectives.  First, Sydney Greenstreet stars as Nero Wolfe in the Christmas crime drama "The Case of the Slaughtered Santas" (originally aired on NBC on December 22, 1950).  Then, John Stanley as Sherlock Holmes rings in "New Year's Eve Off the Scilly Isles" (originally aired on Mutual on December 28, 1947).
