Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Tim Holt plays a rancher named Drummond who runs up against a gang of crooked frontier land agents. When Drummond complains about land-office hanky panky, he's promptly framed for murder. Escaping the law, our hero exposes the real villains with the help of his saddle pals Smokey (Ray Whitley) and Whopper (Emmett Lynn). As proof that the cowboy-hero mantle at RKO Radio had definitely been passed from George O'Brien to Tim Holt, the latter inherits O'Brien's perennial leading lady Virginia Vale in Robbers on the Range. The musical portion of the program includes the stirring ballad "The Railroad's Coming to Town" (PS: It does).
