Frontier Gentleman was a CBS radio program that began its forty-one episode run back on February 2, 1958 and ceasing production on November 16 of that same year. It boasts some top notch acting talent thanks to John Dehner who plays the lead character, J.B. Kendall, the Frontier Gentleman.
The Frontier Gentleman is in the Old West, a British reporter for the London Times – doing his best to give the readers back across the pond an idea of what frontier life is like…and usually finding himself involved in those very stories he is writing about. In our episode for this week entitled The Preacher – Kendall must come to the aid of a preacher with a dark past, will he be able to save the man?

I would be remiss in my duty if I didn’t inform you the theme for Frontier Gentleman was composed by the legendary composer Jerry Goldsmith – who just happened to go on from this show to score the likes of Planet of the Apes, The Omen, Alien, Gremlins, and five of the Star Trek films to name a few. How about taking just a few moments to listen to Jerry Goldsmith and Robert Wise discuss the iconic theme from 1979’s Star Trek: The Motion Picture…and how they were forced to change the original theme!
