On the show this week we have a western from classic series Gunsmoke. This was series that was done right for over 25 years on both radio and television. Norman MacDonnell and writer John Meston were the creative force that brought this gem to radio in 1952. They set out to do something never done before, to create a western for adults, have rich exciting stories and cover everyday issues from a different point of view. Simply put it covered the west as it really was, man’s struggle to tame a new world. 

Our story is called The Old Gunfighter and is one that should remind us to appreciate the older generation.  It first aired on October 25, 1959 on CBS.
