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!
Nero Wolfe is on the case...just
don't ask him to leave his house! Sydney Greensteet is Wolfe
and Lamont Johnson is Archie Goodwin in "The Case of the Careworn
Cuff," first broadcast on NBC on October 27, 1950.
