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.
Lucille Ball stars with Richard Denning in this pre-I Love Lucy radio comedy. They are Liz and George Cooper, "two people who live together and like it," from the popular novel "Mr. and Mrs. Cugat," by Isabel Scott Rorick. Of course, Lucille Ball plays Liz as the oddball wife. George is the typical husband, on the way to being thoroughly confused by Liz. There is much interplay between the sexes, and of course, there is the overbearing boss, Mr. Atterbury, abley played by the great radio, TV and screen "slow burn" specialist, Gale Gordon. He is well known to fans of old time radio as principal Conklin on Our Miss Brooks, a show that served as one of the models for this one. From this, and other old time radio shows, came the couples sitcoms on TV like "I Love Lucy, "I Dream of Jeanie," and "Bewitched." Of course, Easy Aces and My Friend Irma were other shows that featured the ditzy wife, but the ditzy role was first personified and perfected by the wonderful Gracie Allen, of Burns and Allen.
It's a great highlight to hear Lucy, the magnificent comedy talent doing another show besides the one we know so well. We can study Lucy's timing and inflection delivering wacky lines prior to Desi Arnaz. Desi was very lucky to be the big lug that this nutty lady attached herself to, and so a Cuban conga player singing Babaloo got to the "favorite husband" after all.
