Tom Mix Old Time Radio Program

Tom Mix Old Time Radio Program
15 minute western/mystery episodes

Howdy, Straightshooters, howdy.

Based on real-life experiences of the most popular western star of the silent era of films, Tom Mix. Tom Mix (b. 1880, died in 1940) lived a life of adventure and excitement that was perfect for dramatization in movies and radio programs. Just some of his experiences included riding with Teddy Roosevelt as one of the Rough Riders in the Philippines, fighting in the Boer War in South Africa, and in Chinaís Boxer rebellion. In America he was a western lawman in Kansas, then joined the Texas Rangers. When he wasnít fighting he was a master rodeo performer and starred in Wild West Shows. Before this radio program started Mix was one of the biggest silent movie stars. From 1910 to 1935 he starred in 335 films. Read that again, 335 films.

Officially called the Tom Mix Ralston Straightshooters, this program was first broadcast in 1933 and lasted until 1950 at times being the most popular juvenile show on the radio, surpassing even Jack Armstrong. It was a serialized juvenile western show. The first two years of the program were about Tomís adventures in the wars overseas. But then the show found its focus in the Texas town of Dobie, where Mix became a perfect mix of genres for radio: the Western Detective.
Tom Mix never voiced the character based on him for the radio show, but was played by other actors. Over the years the role of Tom was played by Artells Dickson, Jack Holden, Russell Thorson, and Joe Bradley (formerly a side kick.) The supporting cast included Harold Peary (later to become the Great Gildersleeve) as Sheriff Shaw, Vance McCune played Wash (the cook), Pecos Williams (ye olde singing cowboy buddy) was played by Curley Bradley, and Jimmy and Jane (two kids for young audience members to identify with.) And the narrator was Don Gordon.
