Thanksgiving OTR: Father Knows Best — Happy Thanksgiving

Yes, indeed. The Thanksgiving OTR series continues here at First Arkansas News.
This episode features Robert Young as insurance agent Jim Anderson in Father Knows Best — a show that stands as perhaps the best example of an idealized picture of life in the United States. It seems appropriate, then, to feature at least one Father Knows Best episodes when we’re celebrating a distinctly American holiday. Now, don’t worry — this is a comedy and it doesn’t get too bogged down in sentimentality. Really. Honest.
As always, this episode is brought to …

Thanksgiving OTR: Sam Spade — Terrified Turkey Caper

Yes, we’re continuing the countdown to Thursday with the Thanksgiving OTR series here at First Arkansas News.
This time around, we’ve got that tough-talking, hardboiled detective Sam Spade delivering some Thanksgiving-themed fun. What says “happy holidays” more than a crime-solving detective? Not much, I’d wager.
Spade, of course, was a character devised by Dashiell Hammett and was portrayed by everyone from Humphrey Bogart (in the movies) to Howard Duff (on the radio). This particular old time radio episode stars Stephen Dunne in the title roll — a bit unusual since Duff made …

Thanksgiving OTR: Gunsmoke — Turkey Shoot

Ah, what could be more fun than a Thanksgiving-themed episode in bullet-riddled Dodge City?
Not much, pilgrim. Not much at all. As you’ve no doubt guessed, we’re continuing on with our Thanksgiving OTR series here at First Arkansas News with an episode of Gunsmoke starring William Conrad as Marshal Matt Dillon. So far this Thanksgiving OTR series we’ve featured comedies and hardboiled detectives, so it’s about time for a solid, two-fisted western, isn’t it?
Of course, we’ll be running Thanksgiving-themed old time radio programs right up through Thursday. Miss an episode? Don’t …
