Boxcars711 Overnight Western "The Six Shooter" - The Capture Of Stacy Gault (Aired November 1, 1953)
Producer Jack Johnstone has explained that "at first it was an occasional card inquiring about our theme--who wrote it, its title, and so forth. But now its resolved itself into a steady flow of letters and phone calls each week." The tune causing all the excitement is "The Highland Lament" by Ralph Vaughan Williams. To all the mail requesting information on how to buy the record Johnstone must give the same answer: "It's a special English recording restricted to broadcast use only."... The theme of The Six Shooter wasn't the only aspect of the production that created a buzz throughout during the Fall and Winter of 1953-54. The term 'adult western,' when it was first coined in the late 1940s, referred to the overlaying of contemporary psychological themes onto the western genre of literature, Show Notes From The Digital Deli.
