Weekend OTR — two programs featuring New Year’s Day and the Rose Bowl Parade

By: 1 January 2011 One Comment

Happy New Year, everyone.

Hopefully, y’all have had a great couple of days and are looking to unwind from all the festivities a bit. We at First Arkansas News are here to help with a couple of episodes that have two things in common — they both feature New Year’s wackiness and the Rose Bowl Parade.

The two shows at issue are both comedies. One stars Alan Young and the other stars Jack Benny and his usual gang. Great fun? You’d better believe it. Here are a couple of episodes that, indeed, are appropriate ways to wrap up the holiday season.

As always, these episodes are courtesy of our friends at The Cat provided our radio programs for the Weekend OTR series throughout 2010 and we’ll get some more of those great shows this year. If you love old time radio and enjoy saving money, visit The Cat. ‘Nuff said.

Click the below players and enjoy the shows. Downloading is OK, too.

Alan Young — Rose Bowl Float (1946)

Jack Benny — Rose Bowl Parade (1955)
