Mystery of The Lost Ozone was the second story arc on Riders Radio Theater. It was followed by Singing Six Guns.

Plot Synopsis Edit

Riders In The Sky once again lose their entire herd when they stampede and fall off of Three Mile Mesa. Needing a herd to bring to market, the Riders go to Hollywood, California and become contestants on the popular game show, Dialin' For Dogies. The Riders win a new herd and an all-expenses paid cruise to Hawaii. While on the cruise ship, the Riders are knocked overboard and become lost at sea. Eventually, they are rescued by Sidemeat, who missed the cruise ship when it left the dock. The four men and the boat are swept up in Hurricane Oprah, and soon find that Oprah has sent them to a tropical island.
