The Great Gildersleeve, Volume 1 Publisher's Summary

The Great Gildersleeve is a favorite of radio fans, with fine writing, engaging characters, and a brilliant blend of comedy and drama that set a high watermark for classic situation comedy.

In the small town of Summerfield, Willard Waterman is featured as the local water commissioner, struggling to successfully raise his niece, Marjorie (Marylee Robb), and his precocious nephew, Leroy (Walter Tetley), while also courting some of the town's more attractive female residents. As the 20 programs in this collection demonstrate, The Great Gildersleeve is one of the true classics of radio, emphasizing a gentle humor that grows out of realistic characters and situations, and remains an endearing family show that is just as amusing and charming today as when it was first aired.
