The Cowboy Way

 

continued

Old Man: That's right. Ever since Bob Wills and Tex Ritter and Gene Autry and Roy Rogers passed on, the Riders have been America's favorite singing cowboys. These days, they're the only fellas this side of Clint Eastwood who know what "The Cowboy Way" is - and Clint don't sing.

Young Man: And is that why the Riders - Ranger Doug, Woody Paul, Too Slim, and Joey the Cowpolka King - are going to be doing one of their Riders Radio Theater shows?

Old Man: That's right. They reckon by turning "The Cowboy Way" into an adventure story and mixing in songs and humor, they can get across to you young folks just exactly what makes this country of ours great.

Young Man: Are you going to see the Riders in the Sky, Father?

Old Man: 'Course I am, Son. We all are. It's good for the whole family.

Young Man: So when is the show?

Old Man: The eighth of July. It's a Saturday night, of course.
