Burns & Allen Gracie Allen for President( Recording )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 84 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( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 30 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. Episodes include: "McGee's Fish Fry," "Fifteenth Wedding Anniversary," "Fibber's Gossip Column," "Fibber Is Too Sick for Housework," "Killer Canova's Autograph," "The Rummage Sale," "Raking Leaves," "Halloween Party at Gildersleeve's House," "The Wistful Vista Auto Show," "Hiawatha," "Traffic Ticket," and "The Overdue Library Book."

Three rarely seen early Lucille Ball comedies. Go chase yourself: After bank robbers use her husband's camper, Carol Meeley sets out to prove her hubby is too stupid to commit a crime. Next time I marry: In order to claim her inheritance, heiress Nancy Crocker Fleming must marry a "plain American Joe." So, she does what any self-respecting debutante would do-she hires a husband. Look who's laughing: Fibber McGee tries to entice an airplane manufacturer to build a factory in the small town of Wistful Vista
Fibber McGee and Molly by Inc Radio Classics( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 20 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
