Fourth of July OTR — Great Gildersleeve

By: 3 July 2012 One Comment

Yes, it’s the day before the Fourth of July and we Saline County citizens can’t shoot off our own fireworks this year due to the drought that’s gripped central Arkansas.

That’s a real shame, but we at First Arkansas News have something fun in store — a bunch of Fourth of July-themed old time radio shows. That ought to help with those “no fireworks” blues.

We present to you today, then, an episode of The Great Gildersleeve — one of the finest situation comedies to emerge from the Golden Age of Radio. Enjoy!

By the way, any old time radio fan should click here and read the newest Lum and Abner comic strip. That’s an original series here at First Arkansas News and it is updated every Sunday. OTR fans are also encouraged to pay a visit to Why? Head on over and you’ll find out for yourself.

Having said all of that, click the below link to listen to the program.
