Keystone Victrola: Lum and Abner, Set #1 (5/31/15)

keystone lum

1:16:26 – The earliest existing shows from Lum and Abner. Friday Night Sociable is one of my all-time favorite pieces of OTR audio. Lion Hunting is an “orphan episode” from an otherwise lost storyline. The oil well storyline was apparently being wrapped up at the start of 1935. From this point on a large percentage of episodes have been preserved for our enjoyment.

  2. No, but you’ve given me something to occupy my time when I take my daughter to the library this evening! 😀
