PODCAST: The Six Shooter Audition

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 8:00 pm

I received from Jerry Haendiges, of The Vintage Radio Place a large collection of programs, with the suggestion I “broadcast” some of them here on the blog…thing is, many of the programs he sent I’d never heard, and some I’ve never heard of, even as long as I’ve been in the hobby. So for the foreseeable future I’m going to run the shows he sent in low-bandwidth MP3 format - even at 32kbps mono, these shows are some of the best-sounding shows you’ll hear. But remember for even better sound, these shows (and a few bazillion others) may be purchased from Jerry in either audio CD format, or ultra-high-quality MP3 format.

This show is the audition program for the Jimmy Stewart western series, The Six Shooter, recorded on July 15, 1953. It’s the story of a roving gunslinger, Brit Ponsett carrying a gun of, “gray steel and rainbow mother-of-pearl.” You’ll hear the west-coast stock company, including Robert Conrad. Since this is the series’ audition, you’ll also hear Jimmy Stewart introduce the series at the mid-commercial, and a dummy commercial for “our product” after the feel-good ending. Listening to this program, you have to wonder what took Stewart so long to do radio - his deliberate yet natural delivery was tailor-made for the medium.

You may stream the show using the player below, or download it with the link. Remember, by subscribing to this blog with any podcasting client (Juice, iTunes, etc.) the shows will be automatically downloaded to your computer or MP3 player!
