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.
