Gunsmoke & Westerns

Hello MPIR Fans & Friends,
I hope you enjoyed the Lux Radio Theatre shows. Now it's time to put on your 10 gallon hat and strap that six shooter. Get ready for a shooting, and fighting weekend of radio westerns. Featuring Gunsmoke, and other adult western radio shows.

Gunsmoke ran from 1952 - 1961 and is respected for its high values, in all aspects. The show was billed as the first adult western. It was set in Dodge City, Kansas in the 1870's. The main character, Matt Dillon, was played by William Conrad. Other regular characters were Chester Proudfoot, played by Parley Baer; Kitty, played by Georgia Ellis; and Doc Adams, played by Howard McNear.

The series featured top-notch acting and well-developed scripts that set it apart from many other shows, not only Westerns; however, it was the sound effects that stood out the most. Listen carefully and one can hear many levels of sound that really helps transport the listener back to the old west.

The Six Shooter starring Jimmy Stewart, and Fort Laramie starring Raymond Burr will be featured starting Friday Feb 12, 2016. Partner feel free to join Marshall Dillon, Chester, Doc, and Kitty in the Long Branch Saloon for a cool drink and tune into Mystery Play Internet Radio.
