Fibber McGee and Molly On the Air, 1935-1959, by Clair Schulz

Airing from the dark days of the Depression right into the space age, Fibber McGee and Molly was one of radio's greatest triumphs.  At the peak of its popularity during the 1940s, millions of Americans tuned in Tuesday evenings to hear the Old Timer, Gildersleeve, Mrs. Uppington, Doc Gamble, Mayor LaTrivia, and other visitors to radio’s most famous residence, 79 Wistful Vista.  The show was unique in that it aired in 3 different formats: 30-minute productions, 15-minute shows, and vignettes heard on NBC Monitor.  This guide covers over 900 episodes in all 3 formats with entries listing broadcast dates, cast, summary, musical numbers and running gags (including openings of that famous hall closet).  It also spotlights the talents of writers Don Quinn and Phil Leslie, and includes rarely seen photographs of stars Jim and Marian Jordan.
