My Favorite Husband

I want to share another radio show that I enjoy called "My Favorite Husband" starring Lucille Ball and Richard Denning.  It's a lot like "I Love Lucy" and was actually written by the same writters.  Autumn and I love watching vintage episodes of "I Love Lucy" so it only makes sense that I'd like "My Favorite Husband" as well.  Here is a sample episode of the radio show all about mother-in-laws from You Tube.  Enjoy and don't forget to pause the playlist to the right.

Here is a link to My Favorite Husband's Wikipedia page.
It's full of information about how the show got started in 1948 and later moved to television.  The show's sponsor was JELL-O! 
From Wikipedia....
"The 1948 radio version opened with:
Bob LeMond: It's time for My Favorite Husband starring Lucille Ball!
Lucille Ball: Jell-O, everybody!
Theme music [composed by Marlin Skiles, conducted by Wilbur Hatch]
LeMond: Yes, it's the gay family comedy series starring Lucille Ball with Richard Denning and is brought to you by the Jell-O family of Red-Letter Desserts:
O! The big red letters stand for the Jell-O family,
Oh, the big red letters stand for the Jell-O family,
That's Jell-O!
Yum, yum, yum!
Jell-O pudding!
Yum, yum, yum!
Jell-O tapioca pudding, yes sir-ee!"
Have a Happy Day!  Maybe I'll go make myself some Jell-o!"
