When rustlers steal their recently acquired horses prior to their sale Bobbie runs away from home to get Roy and the Sons of the Pioneers to track down the rustlers and bring them to justice. Though Roy and his friends are radio entertainers, Bobbie's desire for justice can't be stopped. Fate allows his heroes to bring the rustlers to justice, especially as the leader of the rustlers uses Roy's radio show to secretly broadcast instructions to his gang.
