Back in July 2011, we at First Arkansas News launched our first modern audio theater series — the Super Weasel Lawyer Team.
What is that all about? Modern audio theater is, of course, simply an extension of the old time radio genre that was the dominant form of entertainment until it was effectively replaced by television. Yes, people used to gather around those radios and thrill to the adventures of Joe Friday in Dragnet, laugh it up with the exploits of the comedic stars of programs such as Lum and Abner or Burns and Allen or head out west with Gunsmoke.
Some people still enjoy audio programs and that’s the audience we want to reach with the Super Weasel Lawyer Team. The episodes are all original. Voice actors from the Royal Theater in Benton, Ark., read scripts penned by Edwin E. Smith and First Arkansas News founder Ethan C. Nobles records the programs, edits them, adds music and deals with sound effects.
While we tend to put a post up on the main site and make a big deal out of every new episode, it seems it would be much more convenient to have all the episodes in one, handy place. That’s really the point of this page. Come here to see if any new episodes are available and make sure to tell your friends and neighbors about the program, won’t you?
And if you really like the series, why not click here to visit the Super Weasel Lawyer Store and pick up a snazzy mug, shirt or mousepad?
Here are the episodes? Adjust those speakers (or headphones), click away and enjoy.
