Holiday OTR: Gunsmoke – ‘Pretty Mama’

By: 12 May 2013 No Comment

Mother's Day 2013Yes, that’s right — we’re adding a bonus episode to our Weekend OTR series in honor of dear old mom. It’s Mother’s Day, so why not celebrate with a classic episode from the Golden Age of Radio?

For this episode, we’re heading to the old West for an episode of Gunsmoke. It’s the gripping tale of a young child and mother being left alone by a rascal who shot the man of the house. So, if you’re a mother go ahead and shoo everyone away so you can enjoy a relaxing old time radio episode. If you have a mother, why not invite her to listen to the program with you (unless, of course, she’s shooed you away and wants to listen in peace)?

Before you listen to this gripping program, why not take a minute or two and visit the good folks at You’ll find a huge selection of old time radio programs over there and prices that are hard to beat. Oh, and don’t forget check out the latest Lum and Abner comic strip posted here at First Arkansas News. We’ve got a new one of those every weekend and it’s just the thing for you old time radio fans — new adventures starring a couple of Arkansas boys who became international stars during the Golden Age of Radio.

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