Old Radio Comedies

Radio Daze: Some Fibber McGee & Molly For Your Old Radio Listening Pleasure!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with another episode of Radio Daze! This week’s episode focuses on Jim and Marian Jordan, better known as Fibber McGee & Molly. This real life married couple premiered way back in 1935 and ran for over two decades until 1956. Fibber was the fast talking -get-rich-quick-idea man while Molly McGee was the long suffering but always supportive wife. Known as much for its rogue’s gallery of supporting characters as much as the title couple, Fibber McGee & Molly served as one of the most popular radio comedies of all time. In fact, it was one of the first to feature its own successful spinoff, The Great Gildersleeve, which premiered in 1941 and ran for almost 15 years on its own. So enjoy the classic wordplay and crazy characters of Fibber McGee & Molly. It’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face! So Sayeth The Kendog!

This is some quality comedy folks from one of the best ensemble casts in the business. Enjoy the shows and have a terrific weekend! So Sayeth The Kendog!

The Dogcast: “Fibber McGee & Molly” For Your Old Radio Pleasure!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some more old radio fun. We’re sticking with the comedies this week with a couple of vintage episodes of “Fibber McGee & Molly.” Jim and Marian Jordan played the long lasting couple in Wistful Vista, with Fibber telling his tall tales and Molly patiently putting up with them, sometimes letting the air out of his balloon in the process. These two early 1940s episodes feature Harold Peary as The Great Gildersleeve, a character so popular he ended up with his own series, marking the first example of a successful spinoff. Enjoy these two classic comedies from Fibber McGee & Molly, one of the greatest comedy teams of all time! So Sayeth The Kendog!
