By the time Cisco arrived at the microphone, he had been greatly sanitized to make him acceptable kiddie fare and had picked up the obligatory humorous ethnic sidekick, Pancho, lifted without acknowledgement from Miguel Cervantes’ Sancho Panza character in Don Quixote. Thus modified, The Cisco Kid became a favorite with western and adventure fans during the 1940s. Dubbed “The Robin Hood of the Old West,” the Cisco Kid’s radio adventures originated for many years at station WOR, New York, and were widely syndicated by transcription by the Frederic W. Ziv Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. Jack Mather and Harry Lang filled the lead roles, supported by the usual WOR stock company, and the transcribed series was produced for nine highly successful and lucrative years. This is the first volume in its series.

Author Bio: O. Henry

Author Bio: O. Henry

O. Henry (1862–1910), born William Sydney Porter in Greensboro, North Carolina, was a short-story writer whose tales romanticized the commonplace, in particular, the lives of ordinary people in New York City. His stories often had surprise endings, a device that became identified with his name. He began writing sketches around 1887, and his stories of adventure in the Southwest United States and in Central America were immediately popular with magazine readers.
