My Town Detroit
To accommodate different time zones, each half-hour Lone Ranger episode was performed live three times. Although Beemer’s voice is the one most closely associated with the show, he actually was just one of several radio Rangers. A dapper little actor named Jack Deeds played the title role in unconvincing fashion for the first six episodes. When Deeds arrived at the station drunk one evening, he was fired on the spot by Jewell, who took over for that night’s broadcast.
There is a woman who works locally at a library whose mother took her on a trolley car to voice whatever children were on the show. She still attends conferences on radio shows personalities. A dying breed I am sure.
