RB205 The Swinging Tower of Eagles' Rest

This is a third "NEW" Ranger Bill story that has not been aired in many, many years. Enjoy this exciting adventure.
Fire tower 10 is one of the highest in the national forest with breathtaking views and a reputation for swaying in the high winds there. Folks from all around the Knotty Pine area like to visit tower 10 and its rangers, Tom and Joe, and to see Eagles' Rest. Young Ken Winthrop has just hiked out to Eagles' Rest when a severe snow storm hits. Ranger Tom slips and breaks his leg, the phone line breaks, and their radio link to headquarters goes down when the antenna blows away. A severely injured ranger and no contact with the outside world - can anything else go wrong?

October is Ranger Bill's Birthday Month

On October 2, 1950 Ranger Bill was broadcast for the very first time. This first Ranger Bill was a 15-minute show. This broadcast was probably made solely from WMBI in Chicago. The story was "The Pendleton Valley Fire" which lasted 3 episodes.
Because Moody and His Kids Radio have shared "A Miss Is as good as a Mile" and since Ranger Bill first aired this month I am declaring October to be Ranger Bill Birthday Month.
Happy birthday Bill and thanks to everyone at Moody and WMBI who brought Ranger Bill and his men to life for us every week.

RB203 A Miss Is as Good as a Mile

We have a NEW Ranger Bill story this week on on our HisKids.net player!!!!
Bill and the fellas are out patrolling the forest in their ranger snow car (with skies and a propeller). While our rangers are in the forest, Knotty Pine is being invaded – by the US Army! Yes it’s time for the army to hone its skills with some war games. The colonel in charge tries to let Bill know about the war games but Bill can’t be reached. Will 20 miles from Knotty Pine is far enough away to avoid problems? My guess is a big fat “NO.”
