Publisher's Summary

This collection features five episodes of the classic NBC radio show starring Bob Hope (designated by theme or guest star):

Jimmy Durante (12/4/1945)
David Niven (3/5/1946)
From Bob's Hometown (3/19/1946)

Bob Hope made his radio debut on NBC in May 1937. He became a top-rated fixture on Tuesday nights with his theme song, "Thanks for the Memories". His legendary broadcasts from military bases around the world helped boost American morale during the dark days of World War II.

Hope's radio career lasted well into the mid-1950's. By then, he had become a major movie and television star. He died on July 29, 2003, at the age of 100.

Thankful for the memories? Hear more episodes of The Bob Hope Show individually, or pick them up in collected editions!
