Weekend OTR — Jack Benny: Hillbilly Feud

By: 3 June 2012 2 Comments

As I announced last week, the Weekend OTR series is back to stay here at First Arkansas News. My, oh my — it sure feels good, too.

With all the hubbub over the Hatfields v. McCoys miniseries on the History Channel, it seems only appropriate to pull out something relevant this week. Yes, we’ve got the “Hillbilly Feud” episode of Jack Benny. Fun stuff? If you’re an old time radio fan, you know Jack Benny is always good for a couple of laughs.

Speaking of laughs and what-not, I’m proud as punch to announce that we have renewed the Lum and Abner comic strip for another year. If you’ve not seen the strip, click here and see what all the fuss is about. This strip thrives on sponsorships as we don’t get the rights to use those characters for free. We have to purchase those rights and sponsorships make that possible. If you want to be a sponsor, click here for details. You get some cool stuff along with a sponsorship, so please keep that in mind.

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.

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