Reminds me of Gunsmoke.
Colonial radio theater is the best.
A traditional western classic
Powder River is the best modern Western radio series being produced. It has the feel of the old Gunsmoke radio programs, with the added benefits of great digital stereo sound. A great way to spend some quality audio time.
