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!

We've got a trio of women solving old time radio crimes in this week's show. First, Natalie Masters is the Golden Gate girl detective Candy Matson in "Valley of the Moon" (originally aired on NBC on December 17, 1949). Then, we'll hear a pair of syndicated episodes of The Phyl Coe Radio Mysteries - a combination mystery and game show - "The Case of the Dead Magician" and "The Case of the Missing Masterpiece." Finally, big screen star Maureen O'Hara is a debutante amateur detective in Cornell Woolrich's "The White Rose Murders" on Suspense (originally aired on CBS on July 6, 1943).
