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!

It's a birthday celebration for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring two of his Sherlock Holmes stories adapted for radio. We'll hear John Stanley as Holmes and Alfred Shirley as Dr. Watson in "The Adventure of the Red-Headed League" (originally aired on Mutual on October 12, 1947) and "The Adventure of the Stolen Naval Treaty" (originally aired on Mutual on November 23, 1947). Plus, we'll hear an adaptation of Doyle's1898 non-Holmes mystery "The Lost Special" from Escape (originally aired on CBS on February 12, 1949).
