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.
