Wikipedia Brown: ‘The Case of the Swiped Shoe’ (Part 2 of 3)

When we left off last week, Wikipedia Brown – teen detective, student of the Internet and self-confessed smarty pants – had accepted a case from Ms. West. Now, Ms. West was the sultry civics teacher that both Wikipedia and Webster – his able assistant – had in Junior High School.
It seems that someone – or something – stole Ms. West’s shoe and sent her a note saying she could have it back only if she met with its abductor. The signature on the note appeared to be a cypher to …

Wikipedia Brown — now in serial format

Back in September 2011, First Arkansas News aired the first (and so far, only) episode of Wikipedia Brown – a bit of modern audio theater that was a blatant rip off of Encyclopedia Brown and featured a teen detective who got simple facts terribly wrong.
First Arkansas News owner/editor Ethan C. Nobles wrote some scripts for the series, wrote and recorded a bunch of music and got some actors from the Royal Theater in Benton to supply the voices for the project. After hours of recording, recording music, making (and finding) …

OTR serials section updated

Because we know people love the heck out of it, we at First Arkansas News have updated our OTR Serials section.
That was started just a few weeks ago to compliment our regular Weekend OTR series. The Weekend series is ideal for those “one shot” episodes, but a lot of popular old time radio programs had story lines that spanned several episodes. The OTR Serials section, then, was put together so that we can present those programs in a format that’s convenient for our readers.
We’ll update that section regularly, so check …

Something new — OTR serials

Well, we’re not doing something new exactly — old time radio (OTR) serials have been around for some time.
They are, however, new to First Arkansas News. Yes, we’ve posted OTR programs at least once a week for some time now, but those have been of the “one shot” variety. Generally, the plot plays out in 15 or 30 minutes and everything is wrapped up nice and tidy by the time the program has ended.
Serials, however, are different — a story arc lasts for at least two episodes and usually longer. …
