Old Time Radio Comedy Shows
Who doesn't like a good laugh now and then? Have you ever tried listening to old time radio? If you enjoy good comedy shows, then you're in luck.
There are many very funny shows in old time radio.
One of my very favorites is "Father Knows Best". The role of father is actually played by Robert Young, who played in the TV show by the same name.

CBS where it ran until 1951. The show is very funny. It's about a couple that's always arguing about just about everything. The exchange of verbal jabs
is a real hoot. The couple is played by Don Ameche and Frances Langford. They do a great job in their roles. You won't want to miss this show.
Or how about "Fibber McGee and Molly". This series ran from 1935 to 1959, being One of the longest running comedy shows in the history of old time
radio. Even after radio stopped being the main form of entertainment in America, this show was still running, due to it's huge popularity. This was one
of the best loved shows in radio in it's day. It's a situational comedy that's sure to get a laugh from you. The shows was inducted into the Radio Hall of
Fame in 1989.
Another one of my personal favorites is the ever popular "Abbott and Costello". You just can't help laughing at this pair of friends who are always
