Happy Birthday, HAL!

Whit's wiping down the counter, Connie's mopping the floor, and the kids are sipping on their milkshakes. If you want to talk about Adventures in Odyssey the radio drama, this is the spot to do just that!

Happy Birthday, HAL!

Happy Birthday Hal Smith. He would have been 101 today. (and, unlike his memorable character Otis Campbell, he did not drink at all).

I think the two newer Whits do a fantastic job, but Hal will always be THE Whit to me... happy birthday! \:D/

Thanks for the reminder, Calhoun! (I meant to post here the other day but didn't for some reason.) Happy birthday, Hal Smith! He will always be my favourite Whit.

I was thinking about Hal Smith (and about this thread) today because I was at a meeting where everyone was wearing name tags and there was a man named Hal sitting at my table. I don't know him at all, and he didn't look or sound like Hal Smith, but just seeing that name (which isn't really common) made me think about Hal Smith all day!

I always liked Hal Smith's cameo in the NES classic, Bionic Commando.

Clearly a way to honour Whit's military service. Nicely done!
