"Frontier Town! The saga of the Roaring West!

of the early west, the tamed and untamed.
From the Pecos to Potter River, Dodge City to Poker Flat,
these are the towns fought to live in and lived to fight for.
Teaming Crucibles of Pioneer freedom... Frontier Town!"
Frontier Town was a radio program from 1949 that starred Jeff Chandler, billed as Tex Chandler, and told the story of individual sagas from different towns in the wild west.
Chandler played the role of Chad Remington, who's quest to bring his father's killer to justice jumpstarted his career as a crime fighting attorney in the small town of Dos Rios.
Chad's sidekick, Cherokee O'Bannon, was played by Wade Crosby, who performed his entire role in a W.C. Fields type dialect.
Mr. Chandler remained in the lead role for the first 23 episodes but was replaced by Reed Hadley who played Remington for the second half of the show.
