Publisher's Summary

Red Skelton's impressive gallery of comic characterizations didn't need to be seen to be hilarious! Through sound alone, he brought to life a "fellow from the country", an inept outlaw, a down-for-the-count boxer, a shady politician, a Brooklynese braggart... and a holy terror known as "Junior, the Mean Widdle Kid".

To commemorate Skelton's centennial birthday, Radio Spirits presents this collection of previously uncirculated broadcasts. Three of these are rehearsal recordings, in which Red cuts loose with wild ad-libs and general tomfoolery that never fail to convulse both his regulars and the audience. This collection co-stars Verna Felton, Pat McGeehan, Anita Ellis, GeGe Pearson, Wonderful Smith, Lurene Tuttle, and announcer Rod O'Connor.

Episodes include: People Who Worry, 10-15-46; Man's Best Friend, 10-22-46; Cheese It! The Cops!, 01-21-47; Rehearsal for March 4, 1947 Broadcast, 03-02-47; A Tarnished Memo of the Golden West, 04-29-47; Rehearsal for May 13, 1947 Broadcast, 05-11-47; The Mothers of Invention, 05-20-47; The Barber of Schlemiel, 05-27-47; Last Show of the 1946-47 Season, 06-03-47; Willie Lump-Lump, Fireman, 09-23-47; The Big Card Game, 10-07-47; Rehearsal for October 14, 1947 Broadcast, 10-12-47.
