[Opening]
[Voice of Stanley Andrews] (The sound of a bugle playing fades followed by)
"Howdy Folks, I am the Old Ranger with a new and exciting yarn. True, mind you,
about the historic Death Valley country."

[Announcer] "As the early morning bugle call of covered wagon trains fade
away among the echoes, another true DEATH VALLEY DAYS is presented by the famous
Borax family of products-20 Mule Team Borax and Boraxo. Well, old Ranger, what's your story about?"

[Alternate opening] "Stories of the Old West, stories of hardship and adventure,
of dreams and courage; stories of the American pioneer are all a part of our past, our heritage."
