I think so , Yes !

Was there an early television show too ?
I just remember the radio show.
Radio was great. You always had your imagination to see it.
Gunsmoke, Paladin along with others were on radio in the 50's. Sgt. Preston of the Royal Mounties was one, but I don't remember if that was the correct title.
