This time around on the program, we’re looking at The Old West in terms of popular music and culture of the Atomic Age. When it came to h-fi music, there were plenty of albums released filled with themes from television and film Westerns. We'll cover that, and also have a few other surprises along the trail. We’ll hear from Buddy Morrow, Marty Robbins, Dean Martin, Johnny Gregory, and many others.
