I met Fred Foy when he came to the Cincinnati Old Time Radio convention in 1997. I found him sitting in the rehearsal hall, going over his script for the broadcast. As I approached him, I suddenly became 8 years old. I wanted his autograph but didn’t want to disturb him. He greeted me with a smile and listened pleasantly to my memories of hearing him on the radio. His voice was the radar detector to help me find the right station. Once I heard him, I knew I was on the right spot.
Hislittlenell~What a wonderful way to remember your Dad. I grew up with the Lone Ranger and that vocal introduction, 1st on radio then TV. So sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace.
That’s my father – I miss you, Dad, every day. Rest in peace.

A loss of a true legend. thank you for posting this interview and preserving an important moment in time.
I can close my eyes are and and see our black and white tv on the telecast of the this fanastic show….God they don’t make them like that anymore (too bad)! Mr Foy may you rest in peace!
Two bits of interesting “Lone Ranger” trivia:
1. The series was recorded here in Detroit, at Special Recordings, Inc. on Grand Blvd. & Woodward Ave.
2. “Keemosabe” translated loosely means “wise one”, and “Tonto” in Spanish means “Stupid”.
Thank you Fred Foy and family for the great memories!
I grew up with this guy saying “A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust and a hearty ‘Hi-yo Silver” and I remember it well.
Them were the good old days.
Fred Foy may you RIP, you will be remembered.
God bless Fred Foy and his family. An important part of Americana has passed away today.
Great clip. Rest in peace Mr Foy
Awesome! I used to love watching the re-run of the Lone Ranger back in the late 60′s and early 70′s.
That was awesome, and he’s a cute old man
Very Cool thanks for posting…
