Thanksgiving OTR: Sam Spade — Terrified Turkey Caper

By: 23 November 2010 One Comment

Yes, we’re continuing the countdown to Thursday with the Thanksgiving OTR series here at First Arkansas News.

This time around, we’ve got that tough-talking, hardboiled detective Sam Spade delivering some Thanksgiving-themed fun. What says “happy holidays” more than a crime-solving detective? Not much, I’d wager.

Spade, of course, was a character devised by Dashiell Hammett and was portrayed by everyone from Humphrey Bogart (in the movies) to Howard Duff (on the radio). This particular old time radio episode stars Stephen Dunne in the title roll — a bit unusual since Duff made Sam Spade famous on the radio, but OK.

As always, this episode is brought to you by our friends at If your looking to fill out that old time radio collection with some episodes available for mere cents on the dollar, turn to The Cat.

Having said all of that, click the below player to listen to today’s Thanksgiving OTR episode. Of course, stop in tomorrow for another one.
