After the 11 o'clock news Episode Seven ofChickenman!
The longest running radio serial of all time by Dick Orkin (Radio Hall of Fame, April 2002 by the National Association of Broadcasters).
The 60s Radio serial has "aired in more than 3,000 cities in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and worldwide via Armed Forces Radio,making it the longest running radio serial of all time" (2008 Radio Ranch). Many remember the serial from Adrian Cronauer's radio show, the inspiration for the feature film 'Good Morning Vietnam' starring Robbin Williams. This is not to be missed. If you remember it the first time it was broadcast it will still have you laughing and just as confused. If you have never heard it you will become a fan in no time.
