Holiday OTR: Gunsmoke — Puckett’s New Year

By: 31 December 2011 2 Comments

Gunsmoke!Happy New Year to all from First Arkansas News. Here’s hoping that 2012 is good to all of us.

It’s the weekend so, of course, we’ve got another installment in our Weekend OTR series. And, since it’s New Year’s Eve, we’re making this one part of our Holiday OTR series. It’s a Gunsmoke episode in which someone starts out the New Year in a rather unusual way. How unusual? Well, you’ll just have to listen and find out, won’t you?

Before doing that, please keep in mind that this episode — like others we have featured — is courtesy of our good friends at If you’re an old time radio fan, you owe it to yourself to pay The Cat a visit. Also, keep in mind that we’ll have another installment of our Lum and Abner comic strip posted on Sunday, so click here to see that (and the past strips, of course).

Having said all of that, click the below player to hear the show (if the player doesn’t launch, hit the “download” link and you should be covered).
