    Just heard Duffy’s Tavern. Could the character of Willy possibly have been played by Rex Harrison? It sounded an awful lot like him.

    Great bunch of shows this week, as usual, Greg. Y’all know I LOVE “Gunsmoke.” I’ve been having a great time for the past few weeks listening to “Gunsmoke” and “Have Gun Will Travel” on the radio and then watching them on Encore’s Western Channel each weekday evening. I’ve finally decided neither one medium is better than the other; each TV show is excellent but different from the radio show. What do the rest of you think?

    Driving home tonight I listented to the Fred Allen show (6pm ET) and was reminded of the old Vitaphone cartoons I watched on afternoon TV as a kid. Maybe it was the guy doing animal sounds. The strangest things pop into my head sometimes.

    That picture of Kermit Murdock is from the original Star Trek….circa 1967 I think.

    Happy Birthday Rex Kouri! His theme song and transition music between the commercials and programming is what made me start to listen to Gunsmoke in the first place. Now it’s my favorite OTR show.
