    Ha ha! The guitar image I used above was photographed from the actual guitar I played in the soundtrack. It’s an old Stella “parlor guitar,” much like what Abner might have owned.

    I wish I’d been able to record some nat sound of one of the real bands that performed at the Lum and Abner Festival June 5-6, but I was always elsewhere. What I used in the audio is a 1985 recording of Ruel Bain’s band. He was a fiddler back in the 1930s who performed in Pine Ridge and Mena, and actually toured with the real Dick Huddleston.

    Great job, Donnie! I post on this site too (Dust Specks) and stumbled upon your cartoon. I checked out your audio…what a great way to reach and captivate an audience. Awesome!

    Many thanks! I started the audio feature to accommodate my blind friends, many of whom are fans of Old Time Radio (“Lum and Abner” being among their favorites)!
