    Saturday afternoon I was seeing if the was anything worth watching, and found an old cowboy show. It was old, and very scratchy sounding. I would have passed on it after a few minutes, but I heard the music. It was the third part of the William Tell Overture.
    It was not a movie, it was the first TV episode of “The Lone Ranger” He was my Hero!. I listened to his show every week. KFRC, The Don Lee Radio Station, atop the Don Lee Cadillac Agency on Van Ness Ave.
    Now I was living with my Dad and my stepmother, about three blocks from there so, one Saturday I decided to go meet the Lone Ranger.
    It was, i am sure,1942, and I was 9 years old. It was a different world there in San Francisco. I’d wander here and there just to see what was there.. So I went to the Don Lee Cadillac building, and up to the top floor and waited. I knew what time that show started, but I didn’t see anybody coming in. Finally, I asked someo0ne when did the Lone Ranger get there.
    Oh, the crushing truth of reality when I was told they got it on the radio and played it. I still listened to the show for a while, but slowly moved away from the Lone Ranger. Another blow to my boyhood heroes. Even then I was “cursed” with logic and reason.
    But I still feel a surge of excitement when I hear the Third Movement of the William Tell Overture.

    Morning, Vagabonds.
    Slim, I can certainly identify with that. I was about 10 years behind you when the boyhood heroes were Superman and Roy Rogers.

    Hi Ho Vagabonds, away.
    The day is dark and gloomy, the treat of rain always these days.
    At my age “The Lone Ranger” and “Superman” were in reruns
    as was “Sky King” among others.
    I did watched “Raw Hide”, “Gunsmoke”, “Have Gun, Will Travel”, “Sea Hunt”, and yes “Star Trek” in first run.
    Dark days in Colorado, the lose of 19 firer fighters.
    Prayer for the families.
    Hi to Vagabonds yet to come.

    Good Morning, Vagabonds,

    Loved your reminiscence of the Lone Ranger! I never really got into radio shows. Too young, I guess. MMM did………The Lone Ranger, The Green Hornet, Gang Busters, Pirate Baseball. And his his grandmother loved Our Gal Sal…….every day at 12:15. He’d come home for lunch and she fixed it and sat down to listen to the show.

    Me? I loved Roy Rogers and cartoons and American Bandstand.

    While I wasn’t into radio drama when it was new, in the 80’s and 90’s one of the radio stations in LA rebroadcast some of the old shows every night at nine. I listened to Burns & Allen, The Shadow, The Lone Ranger (and another western starring Jimmy Stewart, can’t remember the name), Jack Benny, and some of Orson Welles old mystery shows. It was great listening while driving through Santa Ana canyon in the dark.
    I really used to enjoy some of the Saturday morning live-action shows: Sky King, Fury and My Friend Flicka all come to mind. After school it was Hopalong Cassidy, Guy Williams’ Zorro, The Lone Ranger, and the Mickey Mouse Club.
    Looking back at that list, I never realized before that most of my “nostalgia shows” are westerns. Even the best parts of the MMC were the serials such as “Spin & Marty” – again with the western flavor.

    Oh, Jan……..that opens lots of memories! Sky King was a favorite. Met Hopalong Cassidy at a school special event. LOVED Guy Williams as Zorro, and the MMC’s Spin and Marty………forgot all about those! Thanks!!!!!!! And yes, the western theme for me, too. That’s why I gravitated on up to Montana and the gold country?

    I so enjoy opening long closed doors. Those were the days, my friends. We thought they’d never end……
    Then we grew up and began to forget?

    In my family we all listened to the radio shows that you all are talking about. That included soap operas. It was during the depression and very early 40s when that was all that we had for entertainment. The only other thing was the movies, with Tues. dish night, and the Saturday afternoon double features with a serial for kids. That used to cost 10 cents. That shows how old I am.
