Thanksgiving OTR: The Great Gildersleeve — Serviceman for Thanksgiving

By: 24 November 2010 One Comment

Hopefully a lot of our valued visitors have enjoyed the Thanksgiving OTR series here at First Arkansas News.

Well, get ready — here’s another episode to keep the fun going. The dandy old time radio episode at issue stars Harold Peary as Throckmorton Philharmonic Gildersleeve and is well worth a listen. The Great Gildersleeve was always a hoot and was one of the first successful shows to spin off another one.

Yes, Gildy first appeared on the Fibber McGee and Molly program and wound up with a series of his own after becoming one of the most popular characters on that show.

As always, this episode is brought to you by our friends at If you’re looking to purchase some old time radio programs, you’ve got to take a look at what The Cat has to offer. You’ll find your favorite series for sale for mere pennies per episode, and there’s always a special running over there.

Having said all of that, click the below player and enjoy the show.
