The Lone Ranger - The Return of Butch Cavendish - Radio Drama

Rudy Ramos, Duncan Regehr, Tim Considine, Bob Daniels in The Lone Ranger, The Return of Butch Cavendish
The Lone Ranger Rides again! On the weekend of June 13-15, 2013 several Hollywood actors noted for their work in westerns came together at the Memphis Film Festival to share stories of their experiences in film and television. As part of the festivities a radio drama re-creation was performed. This year's selection was from the old time radio western series - The Lone Ranger. With an excited audience looking on in great expectation the cast ensemble took to the stage and entertained the crowd with an animated and delightful performance of The Return of Butch Cavendish.

If only more modern audio dramas could be produced with this level of acting talent. What a difference professionals make to the quality of a show! The exhibition put on by this talented group of actors was not only an enjoyable trip back down memory lane to the golden age of radio but it was also a vision of what the future of audio drama could be again. What a fabulous treat!

This outstanding performance has been made available on Youtube for your viewing and listening enjoyment. So return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear.... and enjoy this wonderfully fun episode of The Lone Ranger as the daring and resourceful masked man takes on a fiendish outlaw in The Return of Butch Cavendish.
