Black Jack Ketchum


Short Format Daily Radio Show

July 2017**

Black Jack KetchumIf you aren't familiar with the radio show, you can hear one of the twenty-one shows that we are airing for the month of June right now. Just click on the title "A Drunken Black Jack" and be taken back to the Old West. It has been said of the show that the listener can actually "feel the leather and smell the gun smoke." Incidentally, all of the stories take place in the month in which they are aired.

**These shows will be available for sale in CD format as soon as the month is over.

If you wish to purchase past Daily shows (in a monthly format) click HERE for more information.

The June 2017 Daily radio CD is now available!

July Line-Up:

A DRUNKEN BLACK JACK – A couple of miners thought they could get the best of Black Jack Ketchum because Black Jack was drunk. But they were wrong.

JULY 4 CELEBRATION – Using limited resources, the Nevada mining camps of Hamilton and Treasure Hill have a great Independence Day celebration.

CLAY ALLISON – Clay Allison was probably the first victim of drunk driving. But then, he was first in many things.

ORLANDO ROBBINS – Here is an Old West lawman that needs to be discovered by Hollywood.

A COWBOY’S EXPERIENCE – The actual words of a cowboy describing his experience at the end of a cattle drive.

WARREN MASSACRE 1 & 2 – What could be called one of the most unique stories in the conflict between Indians and whites.

SAM BROWN – What the law couldn’t do, a citizen did. And a jury showed its gratitude.

JUAN BIDENO – When a tough man meets up with a TOUGH man, as in the case of this story, the TOUGH man usually wins.

JEFF SMITH KILLED – Jeff Smith was a conman who knew every way to separate a man from his money, including at the point of a gun.

ROCK CREEK SHOOTOUT 1 & 2 – Quite often, there are a number of different versions of Old West events…especially when Wild Bill Hickok is involved.

ALEXANDER TODD – Alexander went to California to work the gold fields. Once there he discovered much easier ways to gain wealth.

JOHN WILLIAM POE – John Poe had a chance to gain fame for killing Billy the Kid. But the opportunity passed him by like a ghost in the night.

BILLY THE KID KILLED – Although some say Pat Garrett killed The Kid in a cowardly way. Would you have done differently?

BUTCH CASSIDY JAILED – Quite often, it seems the authorities were less concerned about someone committing crime, than they were that crime wasn’t committed in their region. At least that was true with this story.

WILLIAM ELLSWORTH LAY – As a member of Black Jack Ketchum and Butch Cassidy’s gang, “Elzy” found himself the mastermind behind their capers.

DONNER PARTY 1 & 2 & 3 – The story of a wagon train that took a shortcut, which resulted in their ending spending a winter from hell.
