Parley Baer may be best known to old time radio fans for his many years in Dodge City as Deputy Chester Proudfoot on Gunsmoke, but he lent his voice to hundreds of radio shows across nearly every genre on the air. We'll hear him in a Suspense western as a man hunting his brother's murderer in "A Killing in Abilene" (originally aired on CBS on February 3, 1955). Then, he's a husband planning a deadly summer getaway for his wife in "Variations on a Theme" (originally aired on CBS on February 7, 1956). Finally, we'll hear Baer in his signature radio role in "Westbound" from Gunsmoke (originally aired on CBS on January 3, 1953).
