The Lone Ranger on radio

by Mike Newton
(Hamilton, Ohio)

Whenever the Lone Ranger is mentioned, people always think of Clayton Moore. Many people never heard the Lone Ranger on radio although they may have known there was one. The Lone Ranger was probably the first radio program l listened to in the evenings. It came on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7:30 p.m. Whenever people ask me what programs I listened to or on what nights, I have to start with the Lone Ranger. Fred Foy's stirring introduction served as a beacon to direct me to the right station. I met Mr. Foy years later and told him that it was his narratives during the program that created the images in my head. Since I had not yet seen the TV show, I only had the comic book or Cheerios image of the Ranger to work with. I didn't know that John Todd was not a real Indian, but actually an elderly senior citizen who had done some acting in the days of traveling shows. Brace Beemer's deep voice created the Ranger in your mind. You knew he had to be a big, muscular man to have a voice like that. I also enjoyed the selections of music played during the program. The segment played after the mid station break also was the theme for the serial, FLASH GORDON CONQUERS THE UNIVERSE. I continued to listen to the radio show even after we got our TV because I was usually doing the dishes and it helped to pass the time. The radio Lone Ranger will continue to stay in my imagination everytime I hear the famous opening, "A fiery horse with the speed of light...."

I heard so many times about Clayton Moore. His act as a lone ranger is great. I have seen so many times his movies and TV serials. People like Clayton Moore and John are really good actors and they deserve lot of respect.

Yeh the list of songs played during the Lone ranger program is great and very enjoyable. The station is not getting at the right positions sometimes. But me and my family love to hear to this program. Especially the entertaining songs.auto body repair shops in hollywood
