Wild Bill Hickok (Guy Madison) and his rotund sidekick Jingles Jones (Andy Devine) rode across our radio dials - and television screens - from 1951 to 1956 (radio) and 1951-1958 (television).
Guy Madison (real name Robert Moseley) was on leave from the
Coast Guard in 1944 when he was "discovered" and cast in a small
movie part. His good looks got him several roles, but his
lack of acting ability kept him from being a star until he was cast
as Wild Bill Hickok.
This was a cowboy show for kids, with lots of shooting and yelling and simple plots of bad guys vs. good guys.
Our episode is Six-Gun Serenade, from December 1, 1954.
