My Take: This Collection of Classic Comedy Radio shows is truly a delight. I enjoyed listening to these shows. It is nice to be able to listen to something and not have to worry if their would be bad language or sex in the book. These shows are just good clean fun. I have listened to most of these shows in the past but I have never heard these episodes before. These episodes come complete with the music and the commercials. I think that my favorite My Favorite Husband as this show is the basis for the I Love Lucy Show which is one of my all time favorite tv shows.
I would highly recommend these shows for a nice family time to relax and laugh as a family. Nice to return to the good old days.
