Received the following today from Wendy Foy, daughter of announcer, actor, and friend Fred Foy:
Lone Ranger fans here is a once in a lifetime chance to obtain a very limited piece of broadcast history. As you know Fred Foy was the announcer that opened the radio Lone Ranger program with those memorable words From out of the past come the thundering hoof beats of the great horse Silver…
Fred had written a book about the inner workings of the program but was unable to get it published before his untimely death. A signed and very limited numbered (250 copies only) First Edition is being offered as a gift in a fundraiser to set up a museum display of his history in radio and The Lone Ranger in particular. For a tax deductible donation of $110.00, or more, to the museum where his display will be established you will receive one of these special editions as a gift. This First Printing is not for sale. It can only be had through this fundraiser. Numbers will be assigned in the order donations are received. Each will be hand numbered and signed by Wendy Foy, Fred’s youngest daughter. The total amount of your donation will go to setting up the display as all of the production costs are being covered elsewhere. Checks or money orders are to be made payable to The Wabash County Museum only (not to any person). The notation line should say “donation.” They are to be sent to:
PO Box 1313
Wells, Me. 04090-1313
Be sure to include the address you wish your copy to be sent to.
The book is being published by a non family member, who upon reading it, felt every Lone Ranger fan would love to have it.
