Burns & Allen Gracie Allen for President ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1940, American was still staggering its way out of the Great Depression and war clouds were rolling in from Europe. In the early months of that year, the upcoming Presidential campaign spotlight turned to perhaps the unlikeliest but certainly the most entertaining, candidate of all. On February 28, 1940, Gracie Allen declared her pioneering female candidacy for President of the United States on the Surprise Party ticket. Politics was perfect for Gracie's particular brand of logical illogic; and from the very start her campaign caught the public fancy. This quirky collection includes 12 surviving "campaign" episodes of the classic Burns & Allen radio program, as well as "campaign stops" by Gracie on the Jack Benny and Fibber McGee & Molly radio programs

Fibber McGee and Molly by Inc Radio Classics ( )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At 79 Wistful Vista there lived Fibber McGee, a fast talking man who was prone to exaggeration. Although he had radio audiences laughing for almost 25 years, his long-suffering wife, Molly, insisted, "T'aint funny McGee." This incredible comedy featured a onslaught of outrageous characters, including two who created their own successful spin off shows: Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve, McGee's bickering neighbor, and Beulah, who was played by a male actor. Also inhabiting Wistful Vista was a pesky little girl named Teeny, the snobby Mrs. Abigail Uppington, Greek restauranteur Nick Depopoulous, and subservient husband Wallace Wimple. Then, there was the McGee's notorious closet, which seemed to have a life of it's own. The running gag of the overstuffed closet that heaped random objects on Fibber, friends and family each time it was opened is one of the most memorable on radio
