Fred Foy, the announcer on The Lone Ranger radio program whose
voice will live forever with the immortal line "Return with us now
to those thrilling days of yesteryear," died this week at the age
Foy also played the Lone Ranger himself in one episode, when Brace Beemer, the radio voice of the Lone Ranger, had laryngitis.
Here is that episode, Burly Scott's Sacrifice, as it originally aired on March 29, 1954.
The girl in the photo with Fred is my daughter, Karen Hughes, who had the privilege of acting with Fred in several radio re-creations of the Lone Ranger.

And by the way, I play one of the outlaws - that's me in the dark T-shirt.
