Something new — OTR serials

By: 10 February 2011 2 Comments

Well, we’re not doing something new exactly — old time radio (OTR) serials have been around for some time.

They are, however, new to First Arkansas News. Yes, we’ve posted OTR programs at least once a week for some time now, but those have been of the “one shot” variety. Generally, the plot plays out in 15 or 30 minutes and everything is wrapped up nice and tidy by the time the program has ended.

Serials, however, are different — a story arc lasts for at least two episodes and usually longer. Serial programs have been missing from our regular OTR offerings for some time now so we’ve added a mess of them. Want to find them? Sure you do! You’ll find the serials by either clicking here or mousing over the “OTR Serials” menu at the top of this page.

We’ve added some fantastic serials, too — Superman, Flash Gordon, Little Orphan Annie and Lum and Abner (UPDATE Little Orphan Annie and Lum and Abner have been pulled due to low quality MP3 files) are all represented. Be sure to check the “serials” page and subpages often as that series will be updated often.

By the way, if you see a series you’d like posted here, click here to send a request by email and we’ll see what we can do.
