Go West Young Man

Tichnor Brothers Collection
Boston Public Library

We're moseying through the sagebrush this week, as we meet an old friend of ours in Chugwater, Wyoming, and present some cowboy tunes along with an episode of The Six Shooter.

Music in this episode included Go West Young Man by Bing Crosby and the Andrew Sisters, Why Oh Why Did I Ever Leave Wyoming by Dick Jurgens, Boogie Woogie Cowboy by Spike Jones, If Your Ever Down in Texas by Phil Harris, Ragtime Cowboy Joe by Pinkie Tomlin , Dodging a Gal From Dodge City by Spike Jones, Cow Cow Boogie by the Ink Spots and Ella Fitzgerald, Look Out Stranger I'm a Texas Ranger by Phil Harris, and Tumbledown Ranch in Arizona by Frankie Masters.

The Six Shooter episode "Quiet City" was originally broadcast February 14th, 1954.

Brother of Maclane, Jake is a cultural hobbyist and curator of pre-1960s publications, radio and various ephemera. His collection of outdated media formats takes up a considerable amount of space and is frankly beginning to become a nuisance. A man can only own so many reel-to-reel machines before he needs to look into a storage locker.
A communications student here at Idaho State University, Maclane has had a lifelong interest in radio. From listening to old time radio of decades past, to the modern commercial sports talk, country, or top 40 stations, the small town community stations, and now getting involved in public radio, Mac knows there's plenty to appreciate and learn about.
