As some of you may know, I also write historical fiction set in the American West, and am a contributing author at Sweethearts of the West. On the 30th of each month, you will find my monthly post.
For the month of May, I am addressing the popularity of westerns during the Golden Age of Radio, and some of the wonderful programs from that era that are available today.
From a writing standpoint, it is interesting to see how these fast-paced programs were written, performed, and produced. From an entertainment perspective, the radio dramas are filled with suspense, action, great performances, and sound effects that really engage the imagination and make each episode both visual and powerful. if you like audio books, you will love hearing some of these.
So, if you like westerns, or would like to learn more about the original Matt Dillon from Gunsmoke and other classic radio shows from this era, as well as where you can listen to (or purchase) these programs, please visit:
