"Blondes of Comedy"

My Friend Irma

Originally broadcast: in 1951

Meet Millie

Originally broadcast: February 2, 1948

It may be true that "blondes have more fun," but they are also quite clever. And they can solve the simplest of problems or the most complex of problems.
Of course, in the Golden Age of Radio, sometimes the solutions isn't always the best way to go.
Case in point. In "My Friend Irma", Irma and her Roommate Jane has discovered that Jane's boyfriend might be spending time with an attractive redhead that now works for him. A jealous and jilted Jane sets about writing him a letter to end their relationship. But once the letter is sent, things may not be all that they seem. And now Jane must get the letter back, or even more problems will arise. But fear not, for Jane and Irma have set about another plan. The question is: will Jane be able to get to sleep in time?
Doesn't make sense? Don't worry. It will when you hear the whole plan.
And then there's, "Meet Millie". The Story of Millie and her mother who share an apartment together. Their problem: the rent has gone up and they don't have enough money. The solution: take in a boarder. But perhaps that's not as easy as it seems. First they have to interview potential tenants, and it turns out they may have to open their parameters a little bit. But when they finally find the perfect boarder, it turns out there's something wrong with him. Something dangerously wrong with him. And you wouldn't even expect it at first.
Wonder what that could be? You'll find out when you come to see our next show, Sunday, January 7 at 2:00 as we celebrate two funny, fabulous and famous "Blondes of Comedy".
