A hilarious collection of episodes from the beloved radio show Fibber McGee & Molly Excitable and loose-lipped Fibber means well enough, but it's not always easy for even-tempered Molly to keep him in check and out of trouble. Of course, the long suffering Mrs. McGee's penchant for patience makes it all the funnier when she's finally pushed to the point of exasperation. What both McGees have in common is that they're fabulously friendly, opening their door at seventy-nine Wistful Vista to welcome all sorts of interesting guests, including Mayor LaTrivia, Doc Gamble, and neighborly nemesis Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve. Jim and Marian Jordan star in this radio comedy classic, in which warm-heartedness usually wins out over hot-headedness. A safe bet for laughs—as long as you don't go too close to the closet. Episodes include: "McGee's Fish Fry," "Fifteenth Wedding Anniversary," "Fibber's Gossip Column," "Fibber Is Too Sick for Housework," "Killer Canova's Autograph," "The Rummage Sale," "Raking Leaves," "Halloween Party at Gildersleeve's House," "The Wistful Vista Auto Show," "Hiawatha," "Traffic Ticket," and "The Overdue Library Book."

Humorous and good music, too

This audiobook is hilarious. I’m not old enough to have lived in this era, but I found this a crack-up. And I was surprised to hear some really nice music included. The adventures of this married couple are not as “over-the-top” as Lucille Ball had in “I Love Lucy,” so they’re more believable. It’s more the characters’ personalities that make this enjoyable, especially as conveyed through their distinct voices. I liked the “little girl” who shows up on every episode to pester Fibber. It’s always: “Hi, Mister.” “What d’ya want, little girl? You’d better run on home now.” And she sometimes gets the best of him. She’s got a great voice (it’s actually Marian Jordan, who plays Molly). And the neighbor, Mr. Gildersleeve, has the craziest laugh in the world. There’s the old codger who always has to tell a joke, and the rich lady neighbor who tries to sound haughty. What’s astounding is Fibber McGee’s piston-fast delivery of a whole paragraph of words that all start with the same letter, which usually brings a round of applause. The recording includes ads for Johnson Wax, which are often woven right into the storyline. Between scenes there is music, sometimes just instrumental and sometimes with a singer, provided by the Billy Mills orchestra, that was very good, including “Begin the Beguine,” “With a Song in My Heart,” “Diane,” “South of the Border,” “Good Night My Love,” and many more. You get lots of 30-minute episodes in this audiobook, and I highly recommend it for a laugh and a lighthearted pick-me-up.
