At my last stay in Los Angeles I had the chance to visit Author Services Inc. at Hollywood Boulevard and i could see the performance of „Ride ‚Em Cowboy“ at the L. Ron Hubbard Golden Age Theater.
The content of the story was described briefly with: „When a champion bronco-buster and the girl he wants to marry—but constantly quarrels with—compete for the same prize at the rodeo, the results are unexpectedly romantic…Long Tom tries to win Vicky Stanton’s hand as a champion bronco buster but it back-fires terribly on him, so much so that he finds himself the subject of her wrath. He almost gives up when a devilish plan forms in his mind…“
The performance was introduced with a lasso swinger and with a musical pre-show of 2 country western musicians. Also for not-country-music fans like me a performance i would not have liked to miss.
The play’s main character and narrator was a fabulous Jim Meskimen, accompanied by Taylor Meskimen, Jesse Kove and Piotr Walczuk.

The Golden Age Theater has planned to show a whole series of tales that were written for the pulp magazines of the 1930s and ’40s by L. Ron Hubbard and are being released in paperback and as cinematic audiobook dramas performed by Hollywood actors in Old Time Radio Theater style.
This library of Stories from the Golden Age presents the best of L. Ron Hubbard’s fiction from the heyday of storytelling in the 1930s and 1940s, the Golden Age of the pulp magazines. In these eighty volumes, readers are treated to a full banquet of 153 stories, a kaleidoscope of tales representing every imaginable genre: science fiction, fantasy, western, mystery, thriller, horror, even romance—action of all kinds and in all places.
Because the pulps themselves were printed on such inexpensive paper with high acid content, issues were not meant to endure. As the years go by, the original issues of every pulp from Argosy through Zeppelin Stories continue crumbling into brittle, brown dust. This library preserves the L. Ron Hubbard tales from that era, presented with a distinctive look that brings back the nostalgic flavor of those times.
All books are getting also published as audiobooks – audiobooks recorded as multicast performances in the style of the Golden Theater performances.
