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!

This week, we present a tribute to one of the titans of the Golden Age of Radio - William Conrad.  First, Conrad stars in his signature role of Matt Dillon, US Marshal on Gunsmoke.  We'll hear "The Photographer," originally aired on CBS on May 5, 1956.  Then, he fills in for an absent Gerald Mohr on The Adventures of Philip Marlowe in "The Anniversary Gift," originally aired on CBS on April 11, 1950.
