Pitchford interviewed on KGAS
Donnie Pitchford — the tireless artist responsible for the great Lum and Abner comic strips published here at First Arkansas News — was interviewed this week on KGAS 104.3-FM and 1590-AM in Carthage, Texas.
Those of you who are regular visitors to First Arkansas News are aware that we launched the Lum and Abner strips at the first of this month and add a new one every Sunday.That effort was made possible by a bunch of kind sponsors who got behind the project and, of course, Chet Lauck Jr.’s decision to allow us the rights to use the likenesses of Lum and Abner.

Pitchford, of course, talked about the comic strip project and gave out some information about the history of Lum and Abner. you’ll find more about the history of Lum and Abner (and why a lot of us in Arkansas are still fans of those old time radio legends who grew up in Mena) here.
