Ear On Arkansas, 1966, With Tommy Riggs & Charlie Okle

For those maybe finding us recently, "Ear On Arkansas" was a parody of a local Little Rock CBS television station's "Eye On Arkansas" news expose'.   KAAY regularly had this as a weekly show, poking fun at anyone and everyone, especially political figures....

After I got back from my vacation in Little Rock, Charlie Okle was able to transfer this episode and send it on to us for posting...and your enjoyment!  Herewith Charlie's comments:

"Me and Tom voicing.  Tom wrote the material...  Notes:  Harry Pearson (Piercing) was at the time an investigative reporter for the Pine Bluff Commercial newspaper in Pine Bluff.  We were friends with him.  Governor Orval Faubus was being raked over the coals about the expense of the glass being installed in his new house in the Ozark Mountains.  Ear aired on Sunday mornings, so apparently I taped this off the air at home, since I was back in Pine Bluff by the morning..."

Thanks to Charlie Okle, best friend of Tommy Riggs !
