Dr. Sixgun is an American Western radio drama that aired on NBC, September 2, 1954 – October 13, 1955.
Dr. Ray Matson, (Karl Weber) is a frontier physician based in a small western town in the 1870s called Frenchman's Ford. The stories are told by a recurring character named Pablo (Bill Griffis), a gypsy peddler who has a talking raven named Midnight as his sidekick. As his name implied, Matson was equally at home with using a gun or using his medical skills to solve problems.
