Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some more old radio fun. I seem to be on a Phil Harris/Alice Faye kick and it continues this week with the next two episodes from the first season of their Rexall run. In the first, little Phyllis has a boyfriend and in the second, Phil and Frankie buy a live steer to save on meat with predictably chaotic results. Enjoy and feel free to comment either here or on my Facebook page. So Sayeth The Kendog!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some more old radio fun! We’re into the comedies this week, specifically Phil Harris and Alice Faye. Harris was best known as Jack Benny’s hard-drinking, southern-fried band leader. His character was so popular that he got his own show in 1946 and starred alongside his famous movie star wife Alice Faye until 1953. In 1948 his show got a new sponsor in Rexall Pharmacy. These first two Rexall broadcasts involve signing the new contract and the complications that ensue. Listen for the excellent Eliot Lewis as Harris’ best friend Frank Remly.
