Red Ryder:

Red Ryder was an American radio western series based on the popularity of the comic strip Red Ryder by Stephen Slesinger and Fred Harman. It debuted on February 3, 1942 on the NBC Blue Network  and was broadcast three days a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. After the sixth episode Langendorf Bread became its prime sponsor. The final episode was broadcast in 1951.

Since "Red Ryder" aimed a young audience the violence was toned down a bit. Unlike the comics Red was not active as a lawman, but mostly worked as a cowhand. Only when the stories asked for it did he get involved in acting like a (deputy) sheriff. Red also never killed his enemies, only shot their guns out of their hands. Another difference was the name of Red's sweetheart. In the comics her name was Beth Wilder, while on the radio she was named Jane Bruce.

Originally the show was successful enough to beat its rival, The Lone Ranger, in radio ratings. However, when the network sold the series to the Mutual Broadcasting System it was no longer broadcast in the east side of the United States. Mutual and Langendorf continued the series on the West Coast Don Lee Network through the 1940s at 7:30pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, always with the familiar organ theme, "The Dying Cowboy" ("Bury Me Not on the Lone Prairie"). The introduction of television also meant the end of the radio series and its transfer to the small screen.

Front Page Drama:

Front Page Drama drew its long running collection of interesting stories from the pages of The American Weekly magazine.

Running from the 1930s through the 1950s, Front Page Drama was a popular radio program sponsored by The American Weekly Magazine. It is also known as The American Weekly Program, as the radio stories were adapted from stories in the magazine by the same name. Emmy Award winning writer and producer Paul W. Keyes got his start on Hearst Radio directing Front Page Drama.

In Front Page Drama, you can hear fine and varied stories about such things as jewel heists, murderous accusations of a French circus bear, a man who is dead in one state and alive in another, married 1939 dance contest winners who don’t speak to one another, Hungarian murders, strange events such as two women struck by lightening at the same time while talking on the phone, white slaves in French Morocco, Captain Kidd’s treasure map, a woman who parades about as a male pirate, and unearthing a sacred orchid.
