"The Cisco Kid" was a popular film, radio, television and comic book series based on the fictional Western character created by O. Henry in his short story, "The Caballero's Way," published in 1907 in the collection Heart of the West. Films and television depicted the Cisco Kid as a heroic Mexican caballero, although in O. Henry's original story, he was a non-Hispanic character and a cruel outlaw, possibly based on Billy the Kid. "The Cisco Kid" came to radio October 2, 1942, with Jackson Beck in the title role and Louis Sorin as Pancho. With Vicki Vola and Bryna Raeburn in supporting roles and Michael Rye announcing, this series continued playing on Mutual until 1945. It was followed by another Mutual series in 1946, starring Jack Mather and Harry Lang, who continued to head the cast in the syndicated radio series with more than 600 episodes from 1947 to 1956. 3/4/58 Dynamite at Rye Creek 3/6/58 Robber of the Rio Grand 3/11/58 Caravan of Danger 3/13/58 The Burning of the Jail 3/18/58 Raiders Roundup 3/20/58 Colorado River Desperados 3/25/58 The Frightened Witness 3/27/58 Dart of Death 4/1/58 Fight At Devil's Canyon 4/3/58 Cashiel Raynor's Revenge 4/8/58 Uncle Cipriano's Mule 4/10/58 Lochinvar Jones
