Volume 3
Around Dodge City and in the territory on west -- there’s just one way to handle the killers and the spoilers -- and that’s with a U.S. Marshall and the smell of “Gunsmoke”! “Gunsmoke” starring William Conrad. The story of the violence that moved west with young America -- and the story of a man who moved with it. I’m that man, Matt Dillon, United States Marshall -- the first man they look for and the last they want to meet. It’s a chancy job -- and it makes a man watchful...and a little lonely.
It is 1872 and you are living 12 miles from town. Your wife is screaming in pain in her last stages of labor, about to give birth to your first born. You are frantic because you have no idea how to deliver a child. Suddenly, a horse drawn carriage pulls up out front. It is the doctor with his bag and his medical knowledge. You shout into the house to your wife that the doctor has arrived. Who is it? It is Doctor Charles Adams from Dodge City, Kansas, there to give assistance to this important event. He has been doing this type of thing for many years, birthing children, setting broken bones, and curing illnesses. He has even removed bullets from people, including the city's marshal, Matt Dillon. He is gruff at times, but he loves the people he tends and gives them the tender, loving care they deserve. Adams, portrayed by veteran actor, Howard McNear, is the only doctor in town and his importance there cannot be overstated, because without him, many people would have not survived the illnesses and injuries that overtook them. Everyone loves him as we become involved in the exciting, action filled stories of this early American town and its people.
Variety Magazine, the show business journal, called Gunsmoke "an amazing presentation," and The New York Times labeled it "Something new and entirely exciting in radio." CBS Radio knew it had a winner.

5 of 5 Mr. Dillon........ May 28, 2022
Reviewer: Richard McLeod from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
Anyone fortunate enough to hear and watch Gunsmoke whether on radio or television can never forget Chester Proudfoot plaintively calling for Mr. Dillon on a regular basis throughout each episode.  This goes for both Parley Baer of the radio version and also Dennis Weaver later in the television version.  Gunsmoke was a unique program billed initially as an "adult western" and will be long remembered for the unique writing style of John Meston and later writers following on in the same tradition.
If you like a good documentary on a specific radio show, Volume 2 from the Archives Treasures sets offers a fascinating 5 hour Documentary on the history of Gunsmoke with lengthy comments by both William Conrad, Parley Baer and many others.

The Radio Archives staff has again restored these programs back to a level of sound and tonal quality that could favorably be compared to the very day the show aired initially on radio which was April 26, 1952.
