Well, here we are on Thanksgiving Eve.
You know what that means — another sparkling Thanksgiving OTR series here at First Arkansas News. What better way is there to relax on the night before Thanksgiving than with a soothing old time radio episode? Can’t think of a more peaceful pursuit? I can’t either.

Want more good news? Since it’s October, we’ve got another Halloween-themed old time radio program on tap. Get ready for some fun, cubby!
