Memorial Day OTR — the Great Gildersleeve

By: 27 May 2012 3 Comments

Well, it seems that Google News had a problem with old time radio shows appearing on a news site.

So, I stopped running our time honored Weekend OTR series a few months ago in hopes of keeping the folks at Google News happy. It didn’t work. So, to heck with them.

Yes, Weekend OTR is back and will remain here at First Arkansas News. What’s in store for this weekend? How about an episode of the Great Gildersleeve with an appropriate Memorial Day theme?

By the way, if you’re a fan of old time radio, you should pay a visit to Trust me on this. OTR fans should also show up here every Sunday to check out the latest Lum and Abner comic strip. Yes, that’s an original series over there and you don’t want to miss it. Oh, and if you like that strip and would like to see it continue, please consider becoming a sponsor — it doesn’t cost much and you could even get some free artwork out of the deal. Not bad!

Having said all of that, click the below link to listen to this weekend’s OTR episode.

    I wondered what the reason was for the OTR series being dropped (or moved?). Glad to see it back!
