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!

Places, please! We've got three old time radio mysteries set onstage, backstage, and in the aisles of the theatre. Actors, playwrights, and critics are all suspects, victims, and killers and it's up to the detectives to figure out whodunnit before the final curtain. We'll hear "Murder Me Twice" from Let George Do It (originally aired on Mutual on July 5, 1948); a syndicated Boston Blackie mystery known as "Seven Years Bad Luck for Florence Wells;" and "Curtain Call," another strange story by The Whistler (originally aired on CBS on August 27, 1947).
