113. Lux Radio Theater: “The Westerner” & Other OTR Programs

Here's the line up for Show # 113 - February 12, 2018

1.  Lux Radio Theater   9-23-40  "The Westerner"

Judge Roy Bean (Walter Brennan), a self-appointed hanging judge in Vinegarroon, Texas, befriends accused horse thief Cole Harden (Gary Cooper) because of Cole's personal relationship with the famous actress Lilly Langtree--- the woman of the judge's dreams.  Lots of action dealing with homesteaders vs cattle barons.  Great story.   

2.  Jack Benny   11-21-54   "Jack is in Bed With a Cold" 

Jack Gets a cold while at Don Wilson's house, and he's not the most patient of patients. This is a very funny episode and you can enjoy it in outstanding crystal clear sound.

3.  Gunsmoke     7-5-55     "General Parsley Smith" 

Matt is faced with a memorable character in the form of General Parsley Smith. It soon becomes obvious the man is a braggart and a chronic liar --- but what he has to say about a Dodge City crime in the making cannot be ignored.  Great characterization by John Dehner and a surprise ending by John Meston.

Come along for the ride and share the memories, laughter and tears.
