By: 5 March 2011 No Comment

It’s Friday and that, of course, means it’s time to relax to a great episode from the Weekend OTR series here at First Arkansas News.

This time around, we’ve got a charming episode from the Atomic Collection over at That’s a series full of programs that aired back in the early stages of the nuclear fear that gripped the nation (a phenomenon that peaked in the 1980s and was alleviated considerably with the fall of the Soviet Union). If you’d like to relive the good old days of the early years of the atomic age, go ahead and click the aforementioned link to head over to and check out the Atomic Collection that’s selling for next to nothing right now.

Now, we know how it is. You’ll listen to the X-Minus 1 episode we’re featuring this week and you’ll want even more old time radio goodness, right? No problem — just click here to head to our OTR Serials section and you’ll be all set.

At any rate, click the below player and enjoy this week’s show.
