Old but still entertaining

Death Valley Days is an American radio and television anthology series featuring true stories of the old American West, particularly the Death Valley area. Created in 1930 by Ruth Woodman, the program was broadcast on radio until 1945 and continued from 1952 to 1970 with reruns (updated with new narrations) through August 1, 1975.  Currently its being rerun on GRIT and  various networks, making it one of the longest-running western programs in broadcast history. The series was sponsored by the Pacific Coast Borax Company (20 Mule Team Borax, Boraxo) and hosted by Stanley Andrews, alias "the Old Ranger" (1952–1963), Ronald Reagan (1964–1965), Rosemary DeCamp (1965), Robert Taylor (1966–1969).  Stories are timeless and well worth watching.
