Father Knows Best 111 Eps
(111 Episodes) "Father Knows Best," with Robert Young as father, is an Old Time Radio Situation Comedy, broadcast during the early to mid 1950s. Depicting the 'typical American' household, the radio show had a strong following and it went on very (I might add) successfully to television, becoming as popular as a 1950s and 1960s B/W TV sitcom, as was its radio counterpart! (NBC & CBS) Primarily sponsored by Maxwell House Coffee.... "Your father thinks it's the best (coffee), and ....Father Knows Best!!" Enjoy! OTR * def gp ddh
This recording is part of the Old Time Radio collection.
This show could be done today and would be just as funny.
radio was never the same
radio of yesterday so much more entertaining than what is broadcast now. even the commercials were better. right now i have #139 playing and noticed the commercial for caffeine free coffee is has the name of the coffee muted each time the announcer says it? why? seems silly to me :o( i think the commercials are just as important as the story.
Robert Young Did Well As "Father Knows Best"
This episode had good audio clarity which made it an extra pleasure to listen to this fine program. I was an original listener when the radio series started - 1949 - and later, after we obtained a television set in April 1957, continued make it part of our life.
loved this show. I just love Bud, he always has me rolling in laughter. I only wish there were more. I definitely recommend listening to father knows best .
One of the "Best"
