Lakes Area Radio Theatre is teaming up with the Corral Saloon & Eatery in Nelson

This will be an extra special western themed afternoon with BBQ chicken dinner then two western radio shows.  This will be a great day.


“Chester’s Hanging”.  In this  classic radio Western, Matt and Chester once again, get themselves into a sticky situation.   But they’ve never been so sticky that Chester was on the verge of  being strung up by the bad guys.  How did things get this bad ?   How does Matt outwit those nasty outlaws ?  Do Doc and Kitty get involved  with the lynching ?  You’ll find out when you listen to this exciting episode of western adventure.

“SECRET of the WEST”

The town of Dead Rock is under the complete control of the evil Black Buck Brady.  Every attempt to resist him has ended up very poorly for those who have tried.  Help has to come from the outside.  Wyatt Earp is secretly summoned to come to Dead Rock’s aid.  What happens is that “The Secret of the West”  is accidentally revealed.
