It is now possible to get automatic downloads of new In the Old-Time Radio Corner shows as they are posted, without getting my other shows on treasure hunting and softball.
Go to http://danhughes.libsyn.com/rss/oldtimeradio and subscribe only to the old-time radio podcasts.
Tales of the Texas Rangers was on the air from 1950 to 1952 as a
radio show, and from 1955 to 1957 as a TV show. It was an
adult show on radio, and a kids' show on television.
The radio version starred film star Joel McCrea as Texas Ranger Jayce Pearson, and it was rather like a western version of Dragnet. McCrea used modern police procedural methods to solve Texas crimes.
This episode, White Elephant, first aired on July 15, 1950.
