Listen to These Programs: The Story of Gunsmoke: Part 5 ~ Adventures of Philip Marlowe: The Fox's Tail ~ The Jack Benny Show: Jack Goes to the Dentist
The Story of Gunsmoke was broadcast over WAMU-FM, Washington D.C. on April 25, 1976. It was written, produced and directed by Jim Hickman with the assistance of Norman MacDonnell and the original Gunsmoke radio staff.
Hickman flew to California, personally paying many of his travel expenses, in order to tape interviews with the people responsible for the radio show many describe as the best ever produced. Hickman knew cast and crew were aging and so wanted to have these historical interviews to be enjoyed by future generations -- so they might understand the magic of radio in the 1950s.Read More & Listen
