Weekend OTR — Lone Ranger Meets Calamity Jane
Before mentioning a thing or two about this week’s classic slice of OTR, we’ll go ahead and share some news that is nothing but terribly exciting (to us, anyway). We’ve finalized arrangements with the Mena Star and that fine, west Arkansas publication will start running our Lum and Abner comic strip on Thursday, July 28. That fine publication will run the strip weekly and that arrangement came about, in part, because a lot of Lum and Abner fans in that city mentioned to the Star that they’d like to see it in print over there.
So, we at First Arkansas News would like to thank those Lum and Abner fans who visited with the crew at the Star and encouraged them to run the strip. We’d like to remind everyone that we still have sponsorship opportunities available for people interested in helping us cover the costs of running the strip, and don’t forget to shop at our Lum and Abner Store for some dandy t-shirts and such.
Now, this week we’ve got a western-themed old time radio program with an historical twist — the Lone Ranger meets Calamity Jane. As usual, this episode is courtesy of our friends at OTRCat.com. Click the below player and enjoy the show, pilgrim.
