The Have Gun Will Travel radio show has the distinction of being one of the very few series that started on television and then came to radio! Yes, the Have Gun Will Travel TV Show aired for the first time on September 14, 1957, 14 months before the first appearance on the radio! The story is about a man in the old west named Paladin who is a “gun for hire” with ethics. He even did some jobs for free when he felt that someone who couldn’t afford his fee was being overtly oppressed by evildoers of the west! Paladin collected plenty for his services though, as he lived in the upscale Carlton Hotel in San Francisco.
