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!

Our trip to the golden age of radio takes us all around the world this week. First, Jack Moyles hunts a kidnapper in Cairo as Rocky Jordan in "Quest for Tornina" (originally aired on CBS on October 16, 1949). Then, Edmond O'Brien heads to the Phillippines in "The Woodward Manila Matter" from Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar (originally aired on November 25, 1950). Finally, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall lead an adventure in tropical Havana in "Dead Men Don't Leave Prints" from the syndicated series Bold Venture.
