MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING OLD TIME RADIO SHOWS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. HE LISTENS TO THEM WHILE HE IS WORKING IN THE DARKROOM.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE THEM WITH OTHERS SO THEY COULD ENJOY THEM ALSO.
You Bet Your Life is an American radio and television quiz show. The first and most famous version was hosted by Groucho Marx, of Marx Brothers fame, with the unflappable announcer and assistant George Fenneman. The show debuted on radio in 1947, then made the transition to the NBC television network in 1950. The television version was changed very little from the radio version. It was filmed before a studio audience, then slightly edited for television broadcast. In 1960 it was renamed The Groucho Show and ran a further year.
It still appears in re-runs to this day, often on stations and networks aimed at a "family" audience. Most of the episodes have fallen into the public domain.
One often-told story recounts the appearance of a female contestant who spoke in broken English, and who was clearly an easy mark for the quick-thinking Marx. In the course of the usual pre-game interview, Groucho was putting her at ease by asking questions about her life. The contestant offered that she had borne eleven children, to which Groucho remarked "Eleven children!" The contestant innocently replied "I love my husband," to which Groucho responded with the now famous "I love my cigar, but I take it out once in a while!" The audience laughed for minutes. The story goes that the remark was judged too risqué to be aired at the time, and was edited out before the radio broadcast, but the audio of the audience reaction was used by NBC for many years whenever bring-down-the-house laughter was called for in laugh tracks.
