Fibber McGee and Molly is an American radio comedy series which maintained its popularity over decades. It premiered on NBC in 1935 and continued until its demise in 1959, long after radio had ceased to be the dominant form of entertainment in American popular culture.

Our Miss Brooks is an American situation comedy starring Eve Arden as a sardonic high school English teacher. It began as a radio show broadcast on CBS from 1948 to 1957. When the show was adapted to television (1952–56), it became one of the medium's earliest hits. In 1956, the sitcom was adapted for big screen in the film of the same name.
The Jack Benny Program, starring Jack Benny, is a radio-TV comedy series that ran for more than three decades and is generally regarded as a high-water mark in 20th-century American comedy.
With summer time July in particular Old Time Radio shows would go on vacation. That being the case I am playing some of the Fibber McGee & Molly episodes, and Our Miss Brooks, Martin & Lewis and Jack Benny Program, originally aired in January.
This is a departure from my normal routine of playing shows seasonally based. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
