Episode Segments:
 
Honest Harold: Advertising Shark Repellent Powder
In 1935, Peary was cast as Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve in the Fibber McGee and Molly Show The success of the character got Peary his own radio show, “The Great Gildersleeve” which broadcast from 1941-1958. By 1950, however, Peary's run as Gildersleeve was over. He was replaced by soundalike Willard Waterman. Peary moved over to CBS for a follow-up series, which we have today. This episode is from October 4 1950

The Red Skelton Show: Hamburger Stand - Part 1
From Medicine shows to minstrel tours, circuses, riverboat shows, vaudeville, burlesque, radio, television and movies, Red Skelton did it all! And, for a comic best remembered by the television generation for his physical comedy, he was quite adept at well-honed character-driven verbal comedy on the radio. Red and his quirky cast of regulars - including Ozzie Nelson, Harriet Hilliard, Truman Bradley, Bea Benaderet, Frank Nelson, Verna Felton, GeGe Pearson, Anita Ellis, Rod O'Connor, Wonderful Smith, and more - examined the highs and lows of 1940's transportation, occupation, and romance. Here's an episode from March 12 1946
