Holiday OTR: 3 Christmas shows

By: 24 December 2011 One Comment

Merry Christmas to everyone. We at First Arkansas News have a little something special planned for you this weekend — not the typical, single episode that we typically feature in our Weekend OTR series, but three old time radio shows.

Why? Because it’s Christmas and that means its time to do something a little extra for our readers. So, get ready to click away and get absolutely lost in the joy of the season. By the way, it’s come to our attention that the audio players we use work best with the Firefox Internet browser for some reason (in fact, the whole site looks better on Firefox). If you’re not using Firefox, click here to get it — it’s free and certainly preferable to the stock browsers that come with Windows or Macintosh (yeah, Internet Explorer and Safari — I’m talking about you).

By the way, click here to listen to some Christmas OTR serials or here to see the Christmas installment to our weekly, Lum and Abner comic strips. Oh, and if you’re an old time radio fan, be sure to visit The vast majority of the OTR programs posted here are courtesy of The Cat, and shoppers will fine a huge selection of shows, great customer service and outstanding prices, to boot.

Click the below players to listen to the programs.

Burns & Allen — Gracie’s Last Minute Christmas Gift (12/18/1947)

Jack Benny — Trimming a Tree (12/24/1944)

Mayor of the Town — A Christmas Carol (12/16/1947)
