Lone Ranger (born Anthony Alphanso Waldron, 2 November 1958) is a Jamaican reggae deejay who recorded nine albums between the late 1970s and mid-1980s. Waldron spent much of his youth in the United Kingdom and began his recording career with Clement "Coxsone" Dodd's Studio One label. He initially worked as a duo with Welton Irie, but soon began recording solo, having a big hit in Jamaica with "Love Bump". He also worked on the Virgo Sound sound system and had a number one UK reggae chart album in 1980 with Barnabas Collins. He is regarded as one of the most lyrically inventive deejays of his era, and was a major influence on British deejays of the early 1980s. He relocated to the United States in the mid-1980s, but returned to Jamaica in 1998, and began performing on sound systems once again.

Peel often played Lone Ranger's material in the late 70's and early 80's, but didn't seem to revisit much of the artist material after the 80's except in 1993, where he played older tracks from the artist.
