Wild West enthusiasts, press play and tune into this concise, action-packed, old-fashioned tale of the legendary Wild Bill Murphy! Wayne D. Overholser tells the gripping tale of Murphy’s involvement in a fraught and potentially violent land-rights dispute in the suggestively titled They Hanged Wild Bill Murphy. Skilled voice actor James Drury performs this rollicking short story, his gruff, matter-of-fact voice and unhurried delivery beautifully bringing to mind those days on the American frontier when cowboys shot first and asked questions later; when silence reigned on the range, and gunfire stood in for speech, sometimes, when men weren’t sure what to say.
The volatile and dangerous Wild Bill Murphy has come to town with a group of settlers who have hired him to represent their interests. A hearing about land rights is to take place, and the adversaries are gathering at the courthouse.
