"Across the rugged Indian Territory, rides a tall young man on a mission of mercy; his medical bag strapped on one hip and his six-shooter on the other. This is Dr. Sixgun. Grey Matson, M.D. was the gun-toting frontier doctor who roamed the length and breadth of the old Indian territory; friend and physician to white man and Indian alike, the symbol of justice and mercy in the lawless west of the 1870s.”
Dr. Sixgun is an American Western radio drama that aired on NBC from September 2, 1954 to October 13, 1955 as a 30-minute sustaining series. All known surviving episodes of Dr. Sixgun are from rebroadcasts from the Far Eastern Network in Japan of the Armed Forces Radio Service.
Dr. Grey Matson, played by Karl Weber, is a frontier physician based in a small western town in the 1870s called Frenchman's Ford. The stories are told by a recurring character named Pablo, played by Bill Griffis, a gypsy peddler who has a talking raven named Midnight as his sidekick. As his name implied, Matson was equally at home with using a gun or using his medical skills to solve problems.
Stories include the topics of immigrants in the "The Night Riders", gun control in "No Guns in Rail End", and water rights in the show "Valuable Water Rights".
The series was written by Ernest Kinoy and George Lefferts. The announcer is Fred Collins and was directed by Harry Frazee.
Dr. Sixgun is fully restored by Radio Archives for outstanding audio quality.

They called Secret Agent “X”, the Man of the Thousand Faces. Armed with his irresistible gas gun, wearing impenetrable disguises, “X” infiltrates the darkest corners of the Underworld to crush all crime czars!
From the macabre maze of a labyrinthian world, the Skull, master of murder, reached out and destroyed the brains of mighty financiers. Money kings were his meat. And the law could not protect them... Only one man could match brains with the sinister Skull—and that man was Secret Agent ”X”. But the Skull did not fear “X.” For “X”—the Man of a Thousand Faces, a thousand personalities, a thousand tricks—had one vulnerable spot. And the Skull knew where it lay.
The enigma of enigmas, Secret Agent “X” has been deputized by a high government official to battle the darkest, most diabolical enemies of America before they sink their poisonous fangs into the nation’s healthy core. Faceless and unsung, “X” infiltrates these threats in a bewildering array of disguises.
A nameless mystery man with a wartime past in the Intelligence service, declared dead by the Department of Justice, and backed by a shadowy group of powerful philanthropists, Secret Agent “X” took on the toughest assignments of the dirty thirties. Operating out of the half-haunted Montgomery Mansion, “X” was also known as the Man of a Thousand Faces. A past master of disguise, he infiltrated the Underworld to crush crime in all of its hideous manifestations.
Follow the Man of a Thousand Faces as he confronts the menace of Servants of the Skull, ripped from the pages of Secret Agent “X” magazine, November 1934 and read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby.

Nothing pleases me more than to receive one of Radio Archives' albums with its clear sound and excellent packaging. Through my years of collecting classic radio shows I've always wondered at the divide between pure entertainment shows and what I call serious radio. By serious I mean programs such as Pulitzer Prize Playhouse and the classical music programs, such as Toscanini and the NBC Symphony and the New York Philharmonic programs. Also, I include in this category, the Orson Welles drama shows of the 1930s, such as the Mercury Theater and Campbell Playhouse programs. These too are part of classic radio, and shouldn't be forgotten. In fact, I would say that they are something that gives classic radio its legiitmacy in the public eye. Radio was an important part of American life, in all its features. Thanks for your excellent background information on the programs available.
