The Lone Ranger - Comics, Old Time Radio & Other Cool Stuff

I have just started following a blog called Comics, Old-Time Radio and Other Cool Stuff, and came across this posting of a 1942 Lone Ranger radio show entitled "Lennie's Locket."  You can listen or download from the site.  From COTR&OCS:
Everyone wonders why Lennie--a big, burly man--wears a locket and values it so highly. Oddly, the answer might involve outlaws who are apparently black-mailing the owner of the ranch at which Lennie works.
