Tonights old time radio blogcast is from the Gunsmoke radio series, and the episode is 'Jalisco Pete'. Gunsmoke is one of the top selling titles at eddiesotr.com, and with good reason. It's a great series! If you like, you can click right here to be taken to the page that will have another sample episode, and you can purchase this set that has over 450 episodes on it.
It was very well acted, William Conrad played Matt Dillon. Howard McNear as Doc Adams, Georgia Ellis as Kitty, and Parley Baer as Chester. Together this cast created a dramatic series that was targeted for adults, having some of the most explicit scripts acted on radio. The tone was often somber, but it made for a very realistic program. Sound effects were spot on as well, they didn't detract, but rather added to the show. Again, in old time radio, you will not find a better show than Gunsmoke!
