As is our custom, we at First Arkansas News are happy to put up a fine OTR episode to make your weekend just a little more enjoyable. This episode, as always, is brought to you by our friends at

At any rate, click the below player to check out a great OTR episode — Van Heflin, by the way, was really on his game in this one.
