Big Jon and Sparkie

27 Jul

The Erskine Family (LivingBooks for the Ears) is offering these episodes on their web site:

Big Jon & Sparkie
“Where Have Our Little Dogs Gone?”

Big Jon and Sparkie (the elf who wishes he was a real boy) were the creations of Cincinnati radio personality Jon Arthur, who in the 1950s had a great children’s program called “No School Today”.  Jon did all the voices for his program – Big Jon, Sparkie, the Mayor, and all the supporting characters.  Their ongoing adventures were serialized in short daily afternoon episodes enjoyed by kids of all ages.  This week we’re bringing you a complete 10 episode story –  Sparkie’s little dog Bunny, as well as every other dog in the neighborhood, are acting very strangely – and then begin to disappear!  These are gentle, fun adventures that younger listeners are sure to enjoy.  Each episode runs approximately 10 – 12 minutes.

Your Friends,

The Erskine Family
