You aren't that old, are you Tom?

I can remember listening to Gunsmoke on the radio on Sunday car trips in the late 1950s, but that is all and I was born in 53.

Guess Conrad and Baer had the perfect face for radio.

Parley Baer is probably best known as Mayor Roy Stoner of Mayberry. He was the voice of the Keebler Elf, too.

No, I don't remember OTR. But we listen to the show every weekend on Sirius. IMHO, Sirius is worth it just for that.

I can definitely see how "Cannon" wouldn't make it as Dillon, though he might've still looked ok in the 50s... I don't recall seeing any pix of him from that era.

And don't confuse Dennis Weaver and Charlie Weaver... LOL
