Featuring Willard Waterman as the Great Gildersleeves. A reproduction of a script that was performed at an earlier date with Harold Peary in the starring role. This recording is very clear, while the other was more scratchy, but both are top notch in performance by the actors.
Leroy begs Gildy to go to a dude ranch, but it takes some nagging, and guilt trips before he caves in. After being double teamed by Leroy and Birdie, it’s off to Peavey’s for some supplies. Peavey acts as though he doesn’t know about the trip, and makes Gildy tell him all about why he needs the items that he came in for.
Later, Gildy and Leroy make their appearance at the dude ranch, and Gildie’s enthusiasm perks up when Leila Ransom is there. When she seems a little to close to the cowhand on the ranch for Gildy’s preference, jealousy creeps in.
Listen in to see how Gildy handles the barnyard animals. Pigs, cows, and horses. Our hero even shows his hand at milking a cow, but is it just a trick to get him out of the way so the cowboy and Leila can sneak off together? After torturing Gildy for a while, the gang all enjoy a campfire, and the cowboy strums a guitar and sings, You’re the Only Star in My Blue Heaven. Will Gildy win Leila back? Will Leroy ever get to ride a horse? We’ll all have to find out when we listen to the next episode. But it’ll have to wait for a few more weeks.
