Publisher's Summary

Produced and directed by William N. Robson (Calling All Cars, Fort Laramie), Luke Slaughter of Tombstone was one of the many adult Westerns to debut on radio during the mid-1950s. The series tells the tale of a former Civil War cavalry officer who became a successful cattleman in the Arizona territory of the 1870s - a rough-and-tumble life, with many a gunfight and confrontation along the way. Standing as an equal among its counterparts - including Gunsmoke, Have Gun Will Travel, and Frontier Gentleman - Luke Slaughter remains a beautifully produced program, with well-written scripts that still have the power to engross modern listeners.

"Well if ya ask me.." - "I didn't, wichita"

If you could sum up Luke Slaughter of Tombstone in three words, what would they be?

Tremendous stories & characters

What other book might you compare Luke Slaughter of Tombstone to, and why?

Similar to Gunsmoke and many other classic radio stories but I enjoy the storylines, characters and sound effects much more than the others, and the chemistry between Luke and Wichita is really strong and funny and makes for a fun listen.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

MAN OF VISION, MAN OF LEGEND

Any additional comments?

I'm 29 so this was made WAY before my time but I still thoroughly enjoy this audiobook/broadcast. I'm on my third listen and it's still just as good as the first time. Luke Slaughter of Tombstone opened my ears to the world of classic radio broadcasts and I've been working my way through the collections, but this remains my favourite :) Something about the sound effects, voices, stories and the audio quality of the time adds that extra bit of charm for me. Like surface noise on a record ;)
