Baby Snooks was a radio program that ran through much of the 1940s and featured beloved American comenienne Fanny Brice. Brice began doing the character of Baby Snooks in her vaudeville act and it later became a staple of the annual Ziegfield Follies shows. When Baby Snooks took to the radio airwaves in the 1940s it quickly became one of America's most popular radio situation comedies.
In addition to Brice, the program also featured Hanley Stafford, Alan Reed, and Danny Thomas.
My Favorite Husband ran on CBS Radio for 124 episodes from 1948 until 1951. Starring Lucille Ball, Richard Denning, Gale Gordon, and Bea Benaderet, it is perhaps most famous for evolving into the classic television sitcom I Love Lucy. When Ball left the program to move into televison, My Favorite Husband finally moved to television with Joan Caufield and Barry Nelson taking over for Ball and Denning.
