003-100607 In the Old Time Radio Corner - The Cisco Kid

Westerns were big on radio.  Some were almost "literary" and aimed at adults, like Gunsmoke, Frontier Gentleman, and Have Gun Will Travel.

Others were full of exciting action and more for the kids, like Gene Autry's Melody Ranch, Wild Bill Hickok, and Roy Rogers.

The Cisco Kid definitely fit into the lots-of-action category.  Cisco and his sidekick Pancho got into a new fix every week, and by the end of the show they were back on the trailing, laughing with each other.

The program was on radio from 1942 to 1956, and a television version aired from 1950 to 1956.

This episode, War at Oak Pass, starred Jack Mather as the Cisco Kid, originally aired on July 14, 1953.
