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!

Say cheese! Our heroes in this week's episode are solving mysteries involving photographers and the photos they've taken. First, Casey, Crime Photographer hunts for picture-perfect proof of a killer's identity in "Murder in Black and White" (originally aired on CBS on March 18, 1948). Then, a nightclub photographer is marked for death in Richard Diamond, Private Detective (originally aired on NBC on August 9, 1949). And finally, George Valentine is tricked into a blackmail scheme where the blackmailer ends up dead in "Picture with a Black Frame" from Let George Do It (originally aired on Mutual on May 8, 1950).
