The Dogcast: Phil Harris & Alice Faye To Tickle Your Funny Bone!

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. Enjoy and feel free to comment below! So Sayeth The Kendog!
