Publisher's Summary

In one of the goofiest slapstick comedies on the radio, Archie the bartender assaulted the English language and insulted most of Hollywood. Portrayed by series creator Ed Gardner, Archie had hard luck with the ladies. But, he must have had some appeal to draw a group of guest stars like Marlene Dietrich, Gypsy Rose Lee, Chester Morris, Ed Wynn, Bob Crosby, Rudy Vallee, and more. Or maybe the credit goes to his compatriots Finnegan, Eddie, Miss Duffy, Clancy the Cop, Slippery McGuire, and the rest of the gang (played by the likes of Charlie Cantor, Eddie Green, Florence Halop, Alan Reed, Sheldon Leonard, and more). Raise a glass to 20 digitally restored and remastered episodes and rare NBC monitor rehearsal recordings.
