In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Aug 1, 2011

WXYZ radio in Detroit was the home of three classic juvenile radio shows - The Lone Ranger, the Green Hornet, and Challenge of the Yukon.

Challenge of the Yukon ran on radio from 1947 to 1955, and then on TV from 1955 to 1958.

It was set in the Alaskan Gold Rush of the 1890s, and the show featured a dog named King.  At first he was a husky, but somewhere along the way he became a malamute.  He was the lead dog for Sergeant William Preston, the star human of the show.

This episode, The Fraud, was originally broadcast on September 18, 1947.
