And now — let’s hear what’s going on down in Pine Ridge
Donnie Pitchford, the creative genius behind the strip, said he started producing audio interpretations of each episode as a service to the blind. Pitchford is the president of the National Lum and Abner Society and said old time radio programs have held up as a popular form of entertainment for a number of people who are blind. That being the case, he said it makes sense to make sure the comic strips are presented in both visual and audio formats so that all fans of the series can enjoy the project.
If you’ve not experienced the Lum and Abner strips firsthand, make sure to click here to visit the comics page and see (and listen) for yourself. A new strip is posted every Sunday, so stop in at least once a week for the latest developments in Lum and Abner’s hometown of Pine Ridge.
Speaking of the series, make sure to click here and check out the Lum and Abner store for some great merchandise. Picking up a tee shirt or mug helps us cover the expenses of running this project, so we hope those who enjoy the series will consider shopping over there and picking up some gifts (or something for themselves). We’ll add more products from time to time.
Of course, we’re still looking for sponsors to help us keep paying for the Lum and Abner comic strip project. Click here for details on that.
Finally, the Lum and Abner series has been well received so far. We’ve gotten a lot of encouraging comments and suggestions on how to make the series even better, so please keep sending those in — we love the feedback.
