Plus, the Victor Gates comedy cop show Streets of Staccato: Stench of the City #4 will be featured.

Challenge of the Yukon was a radio series that began on Detroit's station WXYZ (as had The Lone Ranger and The Green Hornet), and an example of a Northern genre story. The series was first heard on February 3, 1938. The title changed from Challenge of the Yukon to Sergeant Preston of the Yukon in November 1951, and remained under that name through the end of the series and into television.

'Stench of the City'
Length: Over 1 hour
and 9 minutes
In the first episode of Victor Gates's hilariously naughty "70's cop show with a modern sense of humor", Sgt. Staccato and his men battle it out with stinky pirates as Father Kelly from Belfast tags along. Craziness ensues as events lead to an epic showdown at Mr. B's Ballroom.
"Are you a fan of old-time radio? Do you wish they were still making those wonderful programs so you wouldn’t have to keep listening to the same old episodes again and again? Do you poop out at parties? Do you wish I would stop asking so many questions? Well wish no more o traveler of the airwaves. From Joe Bevilacqua and his Waterlogg Productions, the vita-veeta-vegemin of old-time radio, comes this echo from a bygone era. It’s The New Stories of Old-Time Radio! That’s right, creator, writer, and narrator Joe Bev has taken some of his own favorite radio programs, and created brand new episodes for all of us to enjoy.
