IDS 423 Valentine’s Day 2015 Special

Posted in Episodes, Plays on the IntraWebs on February 9th, 2015

The IDS wishes all the IDSers out there a wonderful Valentine’s Day!! The IDS offers you an Valentine’s Day episode of Fibber McGee and Molly called Valentine Candy from Feb 10 1942.  Enjoy!!

From Generic Radio Workshop:

“The Johnson Wax Program with Fibber McGee and Molly” (the show’s full spoonsored name) is one of the rare radio programs which has achieved a kind of immortality. Well after the series petered out in the mid-1950s, people still respond to the words “Fibber McGee’s Closet,” even if they’ve never heard the original.

Jim and Marion Jordan honed their comedy timing early on, first in small-town vaudeville, and later local Chicago programs like “Smackout.” Fibber McGee and Molly also had to evolve — a listen to the very first show from 1935 reveals an almost unrecognizable set of characterizations. It took a year or two for the couple to settle in Wistful Vista, and a few more years to bring out the supporting cast (like the Great Gildersleeve) and the recurring gags (the closet didn’t appear until 1940) that would make it a weekly favorite.

Listeners today will find the show a time capsule, full of corny jokes, dated references, and as many now-obscure topical moments as any wartime Looney Tunes cartoon. But there are also genuine good feelings and a true sense of happiness in the episodes. The fact that one man, Don Quinn, singlehandedly wrote most of the episodes is a real achievement.

The Cast:

John Mauldin as Fibber McGee and Messenger.

Brad Oxnam as Harlow Wilcox, Old Timer, Mayor LaTrivia, and Wallace Wimple.

Darci Wantiez as Molly, Mrs Uppington, and Announcer.

Per Nashville Rep:

In the post-Civil War South, three men are tied to each other by history and faith, but are also bound by secrets. A badly wounded Jewish Confederate soldier stumbles home at war’s end to find his family has fled to the countryside. Remaining behind to greet him are two of his family’s former slaves… and a cobbled together Passover Seder. The three men unite to celebrate the holiday, even as they struggle to comprehend their new relationships at a crossroads of personal and national history.
