Duration: 5 hours 42 minutes
My Favorite Husband hit the CBS Radio airwaves in 1948, starring Lucille Ball and Richard Denning as Liz and George Cugat—who later became Liz and George Cooper when confusion with bandleader Xavier Cugat prompted a name change. Set in the fictitious town of Sheridan Falls, the show follows the happily married couple, residents of 321 Bundy Drive, through mischief and various predicaments, from faked illnesses to trouble with exes. George, a banker, and Liz, a housewife, were billed as “two people who live together and like it.” The beloved series eventually transitioned to television in 1953, recast with Joan Caulfield and Barry Nelson, as Lucille Ball was busy filming the mega-hit I Love Lucy with her real-life husband Desi Arnaz.
Episodes include “The Quiz Show,” “Katy and Roscoe,” “Piano and Violin Lessons,” “April Fool’s Day,” “Liz and George Reminisce,” “The Surprise Halloween Party,” “Vacation Time,” “Learning to Drive,” “Selling Dresses,” and “George Is Messy.”
