James Jewell, the station�s dramatic director, filled in for one performance before hiring Earle Graser, who took over as the Lone Ranger on 18 April 1933. Although that last point might seem a rather fanciful one, it was nonetheless very real. Despite being the voice behind what Time magazine called �the most adored character ever to be created on the U. S. air,� Graser himself received virtually no credit or personal publicity during his years as the voice of the Lone Ranger, and his name was unknown to many listeners. Just as the news media blurred the distinction between actor Paul Reubens and the Pee Wee Herman character he portrayed on television and in films when he was taken into custody on indecent exposure charges in 1991typically running headlines proclaiming �Pee Wee Herman Arrested�, so they had done fifty years earlier after the death of Earl Graser. �Lone Ranger Killed in Wreck� was a typical newspaper headline of the time, as Graser�s name became almost a footnote in news stories that were seemingly reporting the death of the Lone Ranger character himself. The show�s producers pondered a number of options. Finding an Earl Graser sound alike to take over the role was the most obvious solution, but there was no time to conduct a search for one. Other options reportedly considered and rejected included moving actor Al Hodge from the starring slot in The Green Hornet to The Lone Ranger deemed problematic because he was too strongly associated with the former role; utilizing Jay Michael, who was the original Sergeant Preston in Challenge of the Yukon considered questionable because he�d been voicing too many villain characters on The Lone Ranger of late; and even hiring on announcer Mike Wallace, who later became famous as one of the original hosts of television�s 60 Minutes supposedly deemed unsuitable due to questions over his acting ability. Brace Beemer�s voice was noticeably deeper than Earl Graser�s, however, so The Lone Ranger�s producers had to come up with some way of gradually easing him into the role in order to avoid an abrupt transition that might stigmatize Beemer as a mere replacement.
