Weekend OTR: Gunsmoke — Chester’s Mistake
Yeah, I know — I posted a weekend OTR episode yesterday.
Here’s another one because, well, why not? Westerns are fun and our friends over at OTRCat.com have their westerns on sale right now. We’ll celebrate the big sale right along with them with an episode of Gunsmoke, which was one of the more popular shows of the era. It became arguably more popular when it made the jump to television and ran for years. Gunsmoke had it all — a no-nonsense marshal, nasty villains and an old-time frontier kook or two. While the thought of William Conrad sitting on a horse is a bit ridiculous in hindsight, he did a bang-up job as Marshal Matt Dillon on the radio.
By the way, you can find more old time radio goodness by visiting our Weekend OTR series or going to our OTR Serials section. Don’t forget to read all about our proposed series to make a Lum and Abner comic strip, by the way. Make sure to visit OTRCat.com if you want to grab some great old time radio westerns while they’re on sale.
