Will Rogers Junior was much like his father - down-home, folksy,
and always spouting gems of country wisdom.
And Rogers of the Gazette was the perfect program for him.
Rogers played a small-town newspaper editor who was constantly called upon to solve the problems in his community.
With Georgia Ellis (radio's Miss Kitty on Gunsmoke) as his assistant Maggie Button, and Gunsmoke's Chester, Parley Baer, as the local doctor, there are several voices in this show you'll recognize.
This episode also features Howard McNear, Gunsmoke's Doc Adams and Andy Griffith's Floyd the Barber.
From July 8, 1953, this is Newspaper Being Taken Over.
