Premise:
The Lone Ranger was really a Texas Ranger, named John Reid, who was
the only survivor of an ambush by Butch Cavendish's Hole in the Wall
Gang. Nursed back to health by Tonto (coincidentally, the two had
been childhood friends), he vowed to help bring justice to the West,
and donned a masked (originally to fool the Cavendish Gang)

"A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a
harty hi-ho silver ...
..."
read by announcer Fred Foy.
