In the late 1950s, radio as a dramatic medium was dying out, giving way to disc jockey formats.
CBS radio tried to hold on a while longer by putting on radio what the public adored on television: westerns!
This western, Luke Slaughter of Tombstone, perhaps would have been a huge hit twenty years earlier. It was produced by the same folks who gave us Gunsmoke.
But, good as it was, it was just too late.
This episode, Tracks Out of Tombstone, was originally broadcast on March 3, 1958.
