Description:

Gale Gordon, one of Americas favorite actors with numerous radio, television, stage, and films to his credit, possessed impeccable comic timing and a unique voice that made him one of the busiest and most productive talents of the twentieth century. Today, we remember him best as Osgood Conklin on Our Miss Brooks (1952-1956), the landlord Mr. Heckendorn on Make Room for Daddy (1959-1961), Mr. Wilson on Dennis the Menace (1962-1963), and as Theodore J. Mooney on The Lucy Show (1962-1968), Harrison Carter on Heres Lucy (1968-1974), and Curtis McGibbon on Life With Lucy (1986). Gale also skillfully played dozens of characters on Old Time Radio, such as Mayor La Trivia and Foggy Williams on Fibber McGee and Molly, and Rumson Bullard on that show's successful spinoff, The Great Gildersleeve. He was also the first actor to play the role of Flash Gordon, in the 1935 radio serial, The Amazing Interplanetary Adventures of Flash Gordon. At last, Jim Manago has brought Gales life and career back into the spotlight with a handsomely examined biography that features a complete survey of his credits, emphasizing over twenty years of his radio work, where he developed his comedic abilities. Discover his little-known personal life, including his duties as the Honorary Mayor of Borrego Springs, California, and the desert ranch where he lived in tranquility away from the spotlight.

Description:

The Phil Harris-Alice Faye Show was one of radio's brightest lights; a hilarious situation comedy featuring a friendly sardonic and sarcastic edge that set it apart from its contemporaries. Featuring Phil Harris, fresh off plying his comedic and musical talents on The Jack Benny Program, and his movie-star wife, Alice Faye. The show also starred Elliott Lewis as the remarkable Frankie Remley - one of radio's most unforgettable characters - a humorously irresponsible con-artist with an endless thirst for the good stuff. Rounding out the regulars is Walter Tetley as Julius Abruzzio, a nervy grocery boy with a Brooklynese accent who served alternately as foil or patsy for Phil and Remley's various schemes. Also starring are Gale Gordon, Robert North, Jeanine Roos, Anne Whitfield, and announcer Bill Forman.

Description:

The Cinnamon Bear is arguably the best holiday series ever developed for radio. First heard in1937, this wonderful Christmas fantasy adventure was created and written by Glanville Heisch (with the help of his wife, Elisabeth) for children of all ages. It all starts with twins Judy and Jimmy Barton just before Christmas. Someone - or something - has taken the "Silver Star" from the top of their Christmas tree. The very Irish teddy bear, Paddy O'Cinnamon, comes to their rescue and tells them that the Crazy Quilt Dragon has taken the star to Maybeland. The three venture off to find the Silver Star and come face-to-face with many fantastical characters in Maybeland, including a dragon, a witch, a whale, a queen, a rhyming rabbit, a magician, cowboys, a gentle giant, and even pirates. The adventure concludes with a trip to the North Pole to meet Santa Claus himself!

Many well-known radio actors lent their voices to this popular series, including Howard McNear, Gale Gordon, Verna Felton, Frank Nelson, Elliott Lewis, Lou Merrill, and Joseph Kearns. Judy Barton was played by Barbara Jean Wong, Jimmy Barton by Tommy Carr, and Paddy O'Cinnamon by Buddy Duncan. Now, in collaboration with the Heisch estate, we bring you allt wenty-six episodes of The Cinnamon Bear,recorded directly from the original masters for superb sound quality.
