Publisher's Summary

"The man in the saddle is angular and long legged…the gun in his holster is gray steel - its handle unmarked."

Lean of figure and tanned of skin, his steely eyes gaze out over the violent frontier of the American West. He's a quiet man - but one not to be crossed. He's film legend James Stewart in his only continuing radio role as Britt Ponsett: The Six Shooter.

Here are twenty tense, exciting episodes from the 1953-54 series - including the original audition!

Is there any more?

Just wonderful. I was expecting the series to be much like Gunsmoke, but the main character, Britt Ponset, is actually a gentle and well-grounded man, whereas the Marshal Dillon of the Gunsmoke radio series is quite moody and violent . Jimmy Stewart's narration is outstanding. I am sad they didn't make more seasons.

Any additional comments?

Just love the western novels, books and now audio, at my age I enjoy listening to the radio and I can remember back to the radio days of Gunsmoke, which I have in audio, Thank you.
Kids today don't understand how relaxing it is to sit back and relax to radio programs from the past. I always hoped that some country radio station would take an hour of the day and play audio western programs.

The Best Western Ever

Jimmy is so expressive and fun to listen to. I only wish there were more episodes. I never thought I would like any program more than Johnny Dollar, but Mr. Stewart's Six Shooter is it. Thank you Audible. !!
