THE GREAT GILDERSLEEVE - VOL. 2 - OLD TIME RADIO

The Great Gildersleeve Radio Classics: Great Gildersleeve was one of radio's first spinoff programs. The character first appeared on Fibber McGee and Molly as their next door neighbor. This is volume 2 of this huge collection. Aiding and abetting the periodically frantic life in the Gildersleeve home was family cook and housekeeper Birdie Lee Coggins (Lillian Randolph). Her character was slowly developed as the real brains and caretaker of the household under writers John Whedon, Sam Moore and Andy White. Gildersleeve acknowledges Birdie's commonsense approach to some of his predicaments. By the early 1950s, Birdie was heavily depended on by the rest of the family in fulfilling many of the functions of the household matriarch, whether it be giving sound advice to an adolescent Leroy or tending Marjorie's children. Lillian Randolph also played the character "Birdie" in several Great Gildersleeve fillms. If you love old time radio, you will love this rare radio comedy. Studio: Nostalgia Merchant.
