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!

It's another adventure of Boston Blackie, gentleman thief turned gumshoe.  After Chester Morris' 1944 summer run, Richard Kollmar stepped in and starred as Blackie in nearly 300 syndicated episodes.  As always, Blackie tries to crack the case and remains a thorn in the side of the stubborn Inspector Farraday.  We'll hear "Murder at the Movies," one of Kollmar's syndicated episodes.
