Saturday Is Old Radio Day: Have Gun Will Travel - "The Statue of San Sabastian"

Have Gun Will Travel:
"Have Gun Will Travel," the 106 episode radio Western created by Sam Rolfe and Herb Meadow (starring John Dehner as Paladin) was broadcast on ABC radio, November 23, 1958 to November 22, 1960. Paladin 'Gun For Hire' lived in & worked out of the Carleton Hotel, in 1875 San Francisco. During many episodes, we heard Paladin in conversation with the Carleton Hotel's Chinese bell hop, 'Hey-Boy' (starring Ben Wright).

Have Gun Will Travel was one of those very rare programs which got its START as a top rated television show (CBS TV 1957 thru 1963, starring Richard Boone), successfully moving to radio broadcast, there-after.
