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!

Three hard-boiled gumshoes are on the case in this week's episode. First, Dane Clark stars in Crime and Peter Chambers in an Armed Forces Radio Service rebroadcast of a show from April 27, 1954. Then, Frank Graham is Jeff Regan, Investigator in "The Little Man's Lament" (originally aired on CBS on November 9, 1949). Finally, we'll hear Gerald Mohr in "The Heat Wave" from The Adventures of Philip Marlowe (originally aired on CBS on April 16, 1949).
