Have Gun Will Travel on Radio

Have Gun, Will Travel

Paladin flees San Francisco in an effort to avoid an old flame determined to get him to the altar. He soon finds himself in the small town of Blue Bell, where he is unwittingly drugged, beaten and robbed by five men --- the sheriff and his relatives.  

Robbed of his money, gun, horse and saddle, Paladin is forced to deal with the situation using nothing but his concealed two-shot derringer.

Bury Your Dead, Arizona on I Love A Mystery

I Love A Mystery

Jack is attacked in the desert by a deadly wolf.  

The Maestro announces he is going to turn a wolf into a man.  The boys finally meet Jumping Dick's beautiful daughter.  Things are heating up on the Arizona desert in the town of Bury Your Dead.

Fibber McGee & Molly: Fibber Checks the Water Supply

Fibber McGee & Molly

Molly grows nervous when Fibber drags out his old microscope to examine a drop of water. Convinced the city's water supply is unsafe, he appeals to Mayor Latrivia.  

The problem is, the mayor is more interested in the latest gossip about Doc than he is in Fibber's rantings. 

As is always the case with Fibber McGee & Molly, the banter between the parties is hilarious!


OTR: Gunsmoke - Obie Tater

An old prospector by the name of Obie Tater finds himself in serious trouble. He refuses to tell his new bride where he has hidden his fortune in gold.  

While Matt and Doc are not fully convinced the old man ever had a treasure, they are nonetheless convinced Obie may be in grave danger.  There is just something not right about that new wife of his!

This is a very touching episode that gives credence to the old saw: "There's no fool like an old fool."
