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!

Perfect listening

What did you love best about The Six Shooter?

James Stewart, great actor and I just love listening to the story as told.

What did you like best about this story?

Western action

Which scene was your favorite?

Beginning as it sets the stage for what's to come in the story and the beginning will tell me if the story will hold my interest.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Man from Abilene

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.

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.
