January 22, 1956: Fort Laramie' airs for the First time


January 22, 1956: Raymond Burr played the role of Captain Lee Quince in ‘Fort Laramie’ which was first broadcast on CBS. The show revolved around “Gunsmoke tradition".

Laramie' portrayed life on the frontier of a young United States. Some of the radio western stories were good, some sad, but authenticity was key, which held listeners' attentions.


  1. I always have an "older" Raymond Burr in mind when I listen to this show--not this young pup! One of my favorites.
