Fred Foy (Obit)

Fred Foy, the announcer for The Lone Ranger radio show, died recently. This obituary excerpt was published in the Boston Globe (click on the excerpt to go to the full article).

More than a thousand times, Fred Foy stepped close to the microphone in a studio at WXYZ radio in Detroit. With the “William Tell Overture’’ playing in the background, he spoke words that resonated for generations: “A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust, and a hearty, ‘Hi! Yo! Silver!’ The Lone Ranger!’’
