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're heading west this week with three old time radio cowboy crimesolvers. First, William Conrad is US Marshal Matt Dillon in "Chester's Murder" from Gunsmoke (originally aired on CBS on January 15, 1955). Then, Jeff Chandler trades Michael Shayne's fedora for a pair of spurs as western attorney Chad Remington in the syndicated drama Frontier Town. We'll hear him in "The Case of Felipe Gomez." Finally, big screen western star Joel McCrea is Ranger Pearson in "The White Suit" from Tales of the Texas Rangers (originally aired on NBC on November 5, 1950).
