Did The Lone Ranger meet Buffalo Bill, Calamity Jane, Annie Oakley, Billy the Kid, and more historical western figures? During the 1944 season of The Lone Ranger, our hero encountered real personalities of American Western history.
In an excellent two-part Lone Ranger episode, The Lone Ranger is joined by Teddy Roosevelt and artist Frederic Remington to fight Butch Cassidy and his gang. Also included in this collection are four Gunsmoke old time radio episodes and one Frontier Gentlemen episode featuring historical western personalities.
This collection is based on the research by Tim DeForest. For more about The Lone Ranger, Matt Dillon (Gunsmoke), and J.B. Kendall (Frontier Gentlemen) meeting historical personalities of the West, please see Tim DeForest's article: Lone Ranger: Adventures with Historical Western Figures in Old Time Radio.
