Fort Laramie is a Western drama that depicted life at old Fort Laramie during the 19th Century. When Norman Macdonnell created FORT LARAMIE in late 1955, he made it clear to his writers that historical accuracy was essential to the integrity of the series. Correct geographic names, authentic Indian practices, military terminology, and utilizing actual names of the original buildings of the real fort, was insisted upon. So when the radio characters referred to the sutler’s store (which is what the trading post was called prior to 1870), the surgeon’s quarters, Old Bedlam (the officers’ quarters) or the old bakery, they were naming actual structures in the original fort.

Good listening

My husband and I both enjoy Ft. Laramie. I had been listening to Andrew's daily radio western podcast since it's inception. I appreciate his efforts to present and preserve radio programs. He chooses some programs that are traditional western fare but then throws in some "darker" radio fare like Gunsmoke and Fort Laramie.

Too much unnecessary and often unintelligible opening comments and final comments. The announcer must speak slower and pronounce words carefully otherwise what’s the point of saying anything.
