Bobby Benson and the B-Bar-B Riders
50 years ago one of the most listened to children's programs on was Bobby Benson and the B-Bar-B Riders. The show was heard from 1949 until 1955. Benson outlasted virtually every other kids' dramatic show including Superman, Green Hornet, Captain Midnight, Sky King, and Straight Arrow. The B-Bar-B ranch featured: Bobby Benson - "The Cowboy Kid," Tex, Windy Wales, Harka, and Irish. Don Knotts (who would later go on to TV and movie fame) was then in his mid-20s and was the voice of the old geezer, Windy Wales.
