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!

Bob Bailey stars as "the man with the action packed expense account" in a complete five-part adventure of Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar.  From 1955 through 1956, Dollar's adventures aired five nights a week over CBS and this run of shows is remembered today as a highlight of the Golden Age of Radio.  We'll hear "The Cui Bono Matter," originally aired on CBS between February 13 and February 17, 1956.  Plus - find out who won our 50th Episode Contest!
