Famous Weekly Old-Time Radio Shows
Gunsmoke ranks high among the "best of OTR". The show was broadcast on CBS between 1952 and 1961, usually on Saturday or Sunday evenings. One of the bases of its "realism" was its inclusion of background sound effects normally omitted from most radio shows. William Conrad played Marshall Matt Dillon, of Dodge City. This 1:20 soundclip of a Gunsmoke opening was originally heard on October 11, 1956, at 12:30 PM.
