Holiday OTR: Jack Benny — How the Gang Spent Thanksgiving

By: 25 November 2011 2 Comments

Here’s hoping all our loyal First Arkansas News readers had a great Thanksgiving.

Hopefully, everyone is relaxing after spending some time with friends and family and is getting geared up for Christmas. Of course, we certainly hope you’re ready for a holiday themed old time radio episode to make this season just that much more enjoyable.

And, yes, we’ve got a great episode chosen this weekend — one in which we see how Jack Benny and the gang spent their Thanksgiving. It’s wacky, fun and just the thing to relax to while getting over the fun of Thanksgiving, the shock of Black Friday and preparing for the Christmas season.

Speaking of Christmas, make sure to stop in daily to check out what’s new in our Christmas serials collection. We’ve got three serials running and will update those on a daily basis through Christmas. Don’t dawdle – those programs will only be around through New Year’s Day and won’t be available again until around Thanksgiving next year.

And if you’re looking for that perfect Christmas gift for an old time radio fan, visit our friends at You’ll find plenty of gift ideas over there and prices that are downright impossible to beat.

Oh, and here’s another great source of unique gifts for that OTR fan on your list — our Lum and Abner Store. The products there, of course, are inspired by our exclusive Lum and Abner comic strip.
