Rangeland Romances, Volume 1 | [Marian O'Hearn, RadioArchives.com]

Rangeland Romances, Volume 1

One of the most successful pulp magazines ever envisioned was Ranch Romances. Combining Wild West settings with the eternal struggle to snag a mate, it ran from the 1920s clear to the '70s. Naturally, other publishers jumped on the wagon train. Popular Publications did so in 1935 with Rangeland Romances.

Publisher's Summary

First editor Rogers Terrill described his approach this way: "Over a year ago we started a new magazine with a new idea. We started a romance magazine in which the hero and heroine fight side by side, live an adventurous life together, experience hope and despair, defeat and success, and finally love together. We brought out a magazine that was true to life; that was about characters who really could have lived and done those things that the author writes about."

In other words, Rangeland Romances wasn't just another Cinderella love pulp. The formula - which succeeding editors tinkered with from time to time - worked like a charm. Rangeland Romances ran for a generation.

For our first Rangeland Romances audiobook, we've chosen to record the August 1948 issue in its entirety. All seven stories. It's a hoot.

Described as a novel of "Border Romance", Marian O'Hearn's "Fiesta Kisses are Sweetest" leads off the collection. It's followed by a brace of fun frontier novelettes, Art Lawson's "Cupid Rules the Roost" and Isabel Stewart Way's "No Sirens Wanted". Four sizzling short stories follow. "Salty but Susceptible", "Petticoat-Corralin' Hombre", "I'm Claiming That Guy!", and "Gambling Gal".

These are sweet yet salty stories of determined cowgirls navigating the complicated courtship rituals of ranches ranging from the Dakotas to the Southwest. Pistol-packin' Doris Day in Annie Get Your Gun! gives you a good idea of the flavor of the festivities.
