On this date in 1933 The Long Ranger premiered on ABC radio.
I remember the radio and the TV show. Larry Holcomb and I used to put on our holsters and take our favorite sticks (horses) and gallop all over the neighborhood keeping law and order.
One of us was the Lone Ranger and one of us was Tonto – it is according who you ask –whoever you ask would say he was the Lone Ranger and “he is Tonto”.
Of course Clayton Moore was really THE ONE AND ONLY Lone Ranger. Just asked him. Merita Bread or whoever owns the rights to the Long Ranger practically had to hold him down and rip off his mask – but instead, they even acted dirtier – they had lawyers threaten to sue him… how low can you get?
So, who was that masked man?
