Will present a fun program on


Little Rascals


Radio Station





We’ll See and Hear…


Three (3) 20-minute vintage


Little Rascals shows as seen in the


1950s and 1960s on Boise TV



“Mike Fright” from 1934


When open auditions are announced for a “kids” radio variety program, 
the station is besieged by aggressively over-coached "professional kids." 

Also auditioning is the International Silver String Submarine Bandwhich as

it turns out, is the gang, equipped with their own home-made instruments!


The Pinch Singer” from 1936


Station KWZ is looking for a performer to send to a local

amateur radio talent contest, with $50 going to the winner.

Despite Alfalfa's repeated attempts to upstage everyone else,

Darla Hood is chosen to sing "I'm in the Mood for Love."

However, when Darla fails to show up at the radio station,

Alfalfa then has to take Darla's place on the radio program.

The gang races to the pay phones at the nearest drugstore

calling in vote after vote for Alfalfa who wins the $50 prize!


And “Free Wheeling” from 1932


Confined to a neck brace, poor little rich boy Dickie wants to

play with the neighborhood kids, but his overprotective mother

says no. On the sly, however, Dickie sneaks out of his bedroom

in search of adventure in the company of his best pal, Stymie.

Stymie’s also the “radio” in the car, but his kazoo playing is bad!

They all take a ride on a donkey-driven "taxi" piloted by Breezy,

and the boys, along with hitchhikers Spanky and Jacquie Lyn,

then experience enough thrills and excitement to last a lifetime

when the taxi begins rolling down a steep hill without brakes!


Art will show the restored original films on high-quality DVDs!
