But I've been trying, to no avail,

to trace its evolution and locate its origin.

I have a vague impression that it's from a western radio serial, probably

the Lone Ranger. I don't know where I _got_ this impression,

though--possibly from my uncle, who was one of the LR shows juvenile voices

for a while and eventually wrote his dissertation on it. On the other

hand, I may have invented the connection entirely. If I can get hold

of Uncle Dave to ask I'll let you know what he says.
