D-Day OTR: This is Our Enemy

By: 5 June 2013 No Comment

D-DayHere’s a dandy bonus for the tens of fans of our Weekend OTR series in observance of D-Day. The allies, of course, invaded Normandy on June 6, 1944 — an operation that set the table for the surrender of Germany on April 29, 1945.

One of the most fascinating aspects of the World War II era is how the United States and her allies viewed the Axis powers. The enemy was outright detested and rare were the suggestions that the Axis powers and her citizens deserved of mercy or understanding — the Axis was to be smashed to bits as it was seen as an evil force that was to be destroyed if freedom was to be preserved. There was no question of who the bad guys were in those days and, indeed, the Nazis are still one of the few groups that is socially acceptable to bash.

That attitude is well represented in our little slice of old time radio heaven presented in observance of D-Day. Click the below link and listen for yourself.

Before you listen to this gripping program from the, why not take a minute or two and visit the good folks at OTRCat.com? 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.
