Lum is busy selling advertising time on the Voice of Pine Ridge when Abner enters with news. He has been making advertising sales as well. Now it’s time to figure out what programming the new sponsors want.
What’ll it be, dramatic, mystery, musical, or something else? Mose Moots wants the program that he’s paying for to be about a Northwest Mounted Barber. Ben Withers sold some air time as well. Can he help figure out what format to program?
