ONE OF THE LONGEST-RUNNING SHOWS in Radio & TV History was "THE ADVENTURES OF OZZIE & HARRIET" !
The show began on Radio in 1944, made the transition to TV in 1952 where it aired until 1966.
ALWAYS HUMOUROUS, the entire Nelson Family was involved. Ozzie, Harriet, and their sons David & Ricky, all took part in the Radio & TV versions of the show.
In additon, there was a great cast of characters that included the Nelson's nextdoor neighbor,Thorny Thornberry, and neighborhood teenager, Emmy Lou, among others.
The show had that subtle, gentle, family-comedy touch that set the tone for many other series to follow.
THIS EPISODE IS FROM one of my all-time favorite shows from "The Breakfast Serial" Archives. It takes us back to "Halloween, 1948", a much simpler time period...and maybe for some, a warmer, less complicated era than we live in today.
Think about that as you listen to the fun, the family humour, and the timeless-script writing that always made the show, and the cast, so loved by all who listened.
That's all so well done, that it holds up all of these years later, and you'll hear exactly what I'm talking about as you listen to Episode 1 of "OZZIE & HARRIET" in "HALLOWEEN, 1948". JK

PS: DUE TO HIS WEEKLY EXPOSURE ON HIS FAMILY'S TV SHOW, Rick Nelson, following in his mom & dad's musical footsteps, became one of the earliest Superstars of Rock & Roll and a Teen Idol.
