The Dogcast: It’s Old Radio Time Again, This Time With Phil Harris And Alice Faye!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some more old radio fun! This time I’m featuring a couple of classic programs from The Phil Harris/Alice Faye show from October of 1948! Phil Harris was best known in those days as Jack Benny’s boozing band leader and he became so popular that he was gifted his own show in 1946! He starred with his wife, famous Hollywood actress Alice Faye and the show was a fictionalized version of their lives. Like Jack Benny, Phil Harris surrounded himself with some top tier acting talent with the standouts being Elliot Lewis as best friend Frankie Remly and Walter Tetley as the sarcastic grocery boy Julius. Listen for Gale Gordon in a couple of supporting roles as well. The Phil Harris/Alice Faye show doesn’t quite reach the heights of the Jack Benny program, but’s it’s still damn good! Enjoy! So Sayeth The Kendog!
