Summary

Yee haw! It's a heap o' hilarious as radio's top comedians buckle on the spurs, grab the 10-gallon Stetsons, and slap leather on the purple sage! Straight-shootin' cowpokes, ornery varmints, and mangy owlhoots dot the trail as we round up a barrel of Western laughs!

Bing Crosby hosts The Lone Ranger, Roy Rogers visits with Bergen & McCarthy, and Red Skelton heads to Dead Eye's dude ranch. Come kick up your heels with Bob Hope, "Buck Benny," Fred Allen, Fibber McGee and Molly, and more!

Radio classics

Radio classics from some of the popular comedians of the era. Including an abridged Version of Paleface with Bob Hope and Jane Russell. My only complain and it's a small one they don't name the chapters to its hard to locate favourite programs. They say it's on a download file. But I've never had any luck with iy.
So please just make it easy and name the chapters. But I would recommend it
