I've recently gotten into radio dramas, not audio books that are being narrated but full fledged audio plays with a full cast of actors, music and sound effects. It is something of a lost art (albeit it has seen a bit of a comeback here recently) but one I find highly enjoyable when done right. I came across the Colonial Radio Theater's "Powder River" and, being a fan of the western genre (among others), decided to give it a listen. Let's get the bad out of the way first... the acting is all over the map here, some performances are top notch and ring true while others sound like they pulled me off the street and asked me to act my way out of a paper sack (it's a euphemism meaning I couldn't do it of my life depended on it!). The writing is often a bit hokey and some of the western terminology is flat out wrong (it's Corn DODGERS not Corn DOGGERS).

OK, having been honest with you about that I can still tell you this is a very pleasing entertainment if you can get past the mixed performances and the sometimes shaky writing. Why do I still strongly reccommend it? Well, the good outweighs the bad in my opinion. The stories are often exciting (if sometimes predictable) and the characters are all too likeable while the music and sound affects are all top notch. All of this alone would make this CRT production worth listening to but what really sets it up a notch is writer, director and star Jerry Robbins' willingness to take some extreme risks with his story and characters. Just when you think the story is going to remain lighthearted and glib Robbins does an abrupt turn and takes the listener into much, much darker territory. This really took me by surprise and knocked the wind out of my sails.

I have been listening to this show since I first heard it on Sirius XM. While the first season is not the strongest, it certainly laid down the foundation for what turns out to be classic radio western adventure that brings me back to the wonderful shows of the past. Very strong on character development and some stories that may seem like a mixed bag (shoot out with Indians in one episode, a family drama with no action in the next), but you can't help but to get involved with the characters the more episodes you listen to. I have heard all four seasons and it is solid western adventure. I bought these episodes on download a few years ago but wanted them on CD. Great sound effects, and western music like the old movies. This series is a lot of fun to listen to. I am a Colonial Radio fan, and I am very happy they are releasing so many programs lately.

I have been hooked on this western series since I first heard it air on XM radio. It has the classic feel of the westerns that I grew up with, Gun Smoke, the Rifle man etc. The characters and the town have come to life for me, and I look forward to my visits to Clearmont WY. Some episodes are action packed, and others just meander. I love them all and look forward to many more seasons to come. As they say in the Saloon, Top shelf Boss!

Well written with interesting story plots. I especially like the characterization. The listener feels connected to the main characters enjoying their individual quirks.

I bought these because Sirius/XM got ride of the Book Radio channel where I listened to them faithfully for years. I will eventually get the complete set.
