Burns & Allen : Gracie Allen for President( Recording )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 80 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 & Molly( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A hilarious collection of episodes from the beloved radio show Fibber McGee & Molly. Excitable and loose-lipped Fibber means well enough, but it's not always easy for even-tempered Molly to keep him in check and out of trouble. Of course, the long suffering Mrs. McGee's penchant for patience makes it all the funnier when she's finally pushed to the point of exasperation. What both McGees have in common is that they're fabulously friendly, opening their door at seventy-nine Wistful Vista to welcome all sorts of interesting guests, including Mayor LaTrivia, Doc Gamble, and neighborly nemesis Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve. Jim and Marian Jordan star in this radio comedy classic, in which warm-heartedness usually wins out over hot-headedness. A safe bet for laughs--as long as you don't go too close to the closet

Fibber McGee & Molly. original radio broadcasts( Recording )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fibber McGee & Molly had a long and successful run on radio from 1935 to 1959, featuring its creators and stars, married couple Jim and Marian Jordan. Living in the fictional midwestern city of Wistful Vista, Fibber was an American teller of tall tales and a braggart, usually to the exasperation of his long-suffering wife Molly, who tried to keep him out of trouble. Fibber's weekly schemes would be interrupted by, inspired by, and often played upon the people of Wistful Vista, a set of regular players and characters that were as beloved as the stars of the program.Life in their town of Wistful Vista followed a well-developed formula but was always fresh. The show began as a comic reflection of Depression-era America, but as time went on and the shadows of war came over the nation, the show again caught the mood of the country. World War II was fought on the home front in Wistful Vista as surely as anywhere else in America, but here they had the benefit of Fibber's somewhat addled perspective on life
