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 January 1946, The Fat Man premiered on ABC.  We're celebrating the anniversary with an hour of J. Scott Smart as Dashiell Hammett's extra large sleuth.  First, it's the series' debut episode, "The 19th Pearl," originally aired on ABC on January 21, 1946).  Then, we'll hear "A Window for Murder" (originally aired on ABC on October 3, 1947).
