Jenn Ollivier and co -host Bryan Hendrickson are back again for another week as hosts of  REPS’ weekly salute to the Golden Age of Radio.

This week by popular demand it’s another adventure in the old west with Gunsmoke followed by The Great Gildersleeve.   You will not want to miss these fantastic programs from Radio’s Golden Age.

In addition to our two featured radio attractions, REPS correspondents, John and Larry Gassman,  will interview Beverly Washburn.  Beverly appeared on The Jack Benny radio show as well as hundreds of TV shows.  She toured with Benny as one of the Smithers Sisters even appearing with Benny on the Hollywood Palace.

First up it’s Gunsmoke from January 1st, 1956

On a cold winter night, Matt and Chester ride the range, and encounter an old gent who has been stranded, and threatens Matt. Until he discovers who the lawman is — Old man Pucket — who is in need of a doctor to tend his frostbite, but still threatens to kill the man who stranded him.

Doc has the old buffalo hunter fixed up, and offers some insight for Matt as to Pucket’s way of thinking. Time goes by, Pucket heals up, but his buffalo hunting days are over. Has he forgotten his promise to get the man who stranded him?
