Phil Harris & Alice Faye Show

Spun off from the ever popular Jack Benny Program, The Phil Harris/Alice Faye Show featured band leader Phil Harris and a fictionalized version of his real life marriage to movie star, Alice Faye. Phil, a born and proud Southern gentleman was a constant source of dismay for his wife, as he and his best friend Frank Remley indulged in one crazy scheme after another. Whether it was something as ordinary as wall papering the house, or something as wild as flying to the moon, Phil and Frank would always somehow manage to involve the local grocery boy, Julius Abruzio, as a pawn often with disastrous, yet hysterical consequences.

Alice Faye, in real life gave up movie stardom for motherhood and had agreed to do the show as a showcase for her husband and their talents. Each show includes a musical number from each star seamlessly fit into the script. While Ms.Faye’s songs tended to be ballads, her husband’s ranged from gospel to humorous.

Phil Harris and Alice Faye Show is a true radio sitcom in every sense of the word. The series was a front runner for classic television shows, such as I Love Lucy and The Beverly Hillbillies.
