Weekend OTR: Young Widder Brown — Ellen Talks to Sister

By: 20 August 2011 One Comment

We’re going to do something a little different this weekend — feature a soap opera in our Weekend OTR feature.

Why? Those have been sorely underrepresented here at First Arkansas News but were actually in one of the more popular genres when old time radio ruled the entertainment world. In other words, there’s just no way we can talk about old time radio frequently without posting a soap opera from time to time. To that end, here’s hoping everyone enjoys this week’s episode from the “Old Widder Brown” series. That one ran through 1956 and was one of the more popular old time radio programs.

Before you give this week’s episode a listen, make sure to stop in and see the latest Lum and Abner comic strip. Remember, we update those every Sunday, so never miss a strip. Oh, and if you want to hear some modern audio theater, click here to visit the Super Weasel Lawyer Team page.

This is as good a time as any, by the way, to announce that we’re working on a new modern audio theater called Wikipedia Brown. Yes, the boy detective whom the show was named after is kind of like Encyclopedia Brown, only he gets some details tragically wrong. Ethan C. Nobles, founder of First Arkansas News, has scripted four episodes of the program, has put a cast together and the first couple of episodes should be ready to roll in September. Don’t miss it!

Oh, and make sure to visit our friends at if you’re looking for old time radio program. You’ll find great prices, great customer service and fast shipping — who could ask for more than that?
