Sgt Preston, Challenge of the Yukon:

The Challenge of the Yukon was a long-running adventure show that aired from February 3, 1938 to June 9, 1955. It featured Paul Sutton as Sergeant William Preston, the show’s main character, along with the “Yukon King,” his sidekick. The story was about how Preston and his sidekick fought the evildoers during the period of the Gold Rush in the 1890s. Preston’s initial goal was to capture the killer of his father. After doing so, he started to work for Inspector Conrad, with the assistance of Pierre, his French-Canadian guide.

Throughout its run, the show was heard over different networks, starting from Detroit’s WXYZ, then to ABC from 1947 to 1949, and finally on Mutual from 1950 until the last episode on 1955. The show later had its TV adaptation.

Hopalong Cassidy:

Hopalong Cassidy was a radio western in the United States, featuring the character Hopalong Cassidy created by writer Clarence E. Mulford. It was syndicated via electrical transcription, beginning in 1948 and continuing into 1950. Its network broadcasts began on Mutual January 1, 1950, and ended on CBS December 27, 1952

CBS produced an audition episode of a Hopalong Cassidy program that was broadcast in the summer of 1941 as part of Forecast, a series of pilots for potential programs. After that, little, if anything, was heard about a Hopalong Cassidy radio production until five years later. An item in Radio Life in 1946 commented, "Radio's gone western with a vengeance, as if you didn't know!" and reported that a radio version of the Cassidy movies would be heard "in the near future." That "near future" turned out to be two years.

The program has been classified as both a "juvenile adventure program" and a "western adventure drama." As was true of the movies and television programs featuring Hopalong Cassidy, "the character was much more civilized than the rough-cut character portrayed in the novels" by Clarence E. Mulford. In contrast, the revised Cassidy was described by radio historian John Dunning as "a knight of the range, a man of morals." A newspaper story about the program's debut on Mutual commented, "The radio broadcasts will be specially scripted to highlight the personality, mannerisms and unusual adventures of the steely-eyed, justice-dealing, gun-toting cowboy hero."

William Boyd played Hopalong Cassidy, as he had in the movies featuring that character. Dunning wrote: "Boyd had one of radio's perfect voices. His voice could do anything -- comfort a bereaved widow one moment, scare the boots off her husband's killer the next. It was strong, virile, and straight to the point. And that Hoppy belly-laugh became famous. It was one of his trademarks."

Andy Clyde, "the resident old coot sidekick from the later movies" had his same role in the radio program. Each episode's opening referred to Clyde's character, California Carlson, as "'the same California you've laughed at a million times.'"
