While George Burns and Gracie Allen were uproariously funny on stage, screen and television, radio was - and remains - the preeminent showcase for their comedic talents. Here you'll find 20 digitally remastered and restored radio episodes, including some available here for the first time anywhere, featuring big name guest stars like Cary Grant, Ray Milland, Hedy Lamarr, Charles Boyer, Ida Lupino, Bing Crosby, Cesar Romero and more! Aiding and abetting the stars was a top-notch supporting cast that included announcer-sidekick Bill Goodwin, bashful bandleader Meredith Willson, and rascally regulars Hans Conried, Mel Blanc, Elvia Allman, Joseph Kearns, Bea Benaderet, Arthur Q. Bryan, Paula Winslowe, Verna Felton and Gale Gordon. Burns, Allen, and the crème de la crème of Hollywood talent will have you doubled over in laughter, enjoying one of the true delights of Radio's Golden Age. Includes a Program Guide by Ivan G.
