    Our Miss Brooks was a hit on radio from the outset; within eight months of its launch as a regular series, the show landed several honors, including four for Eve Arden, who won polls in four individual publications of the time. Arden had actually been the third choice to play the title role. Harry Ackerman, at the time CBS's West Coast director of programming, wanted Shirley Booth for the part.

    Eve Arden stars as Connie Brooks, the teacher with plenty of class, in 16 hilarious and heartwarming episodes. Gale Gordon, the master of radio's most impressive slow burn, is her fastidious foil, Principal Osgood Conklin. While haunting the Madison High hallways in search of one Philip Boynton - a tongue-tied biology teacher who seems more interested in the doings of his pet frog than in amorous advances - Miss Brooks meets with conniving coworkers, addled athletes, wide-eyed girls, and the feckless flatterer Walter Denton.
