52 Weeks to Personal Genealogy TV-Radio Show

Week 6 Challenge: Radio and Television. What was your favorite radio or television show from your childhood? What was the program about and who was in it?

While I liked most all of the westerns, from Roy Rodgers and Davy Crocket to Daniel Boone and and the Lone Ranger, but my favorite was the Lone Ranger starring Clayton Moore as the Lone Ranger and Jay Silverheels as Tonto. I loved the Hi-yo Silver! Away and the theme song which was from the cavalry charge from the William Tell overture. Wikipedia says the Lone Ranger started on radio January 30, 1933 and the last new episode aired on TV September 3, 1954.
The Lone Ranger was always helping someone out of trouble, and with the help of Tonto they were successful each week. He also used silver bullets so everyone knew he was on the good side of the law even though he wore a mask. At the end of the show someone would always ask "who was that masked man?" And someone would say that was the Lone Ranger.
