Two classic comedies from the Golden Age of Radio, “Easy Aces” and “Father Knows Best” conclude the PTPRC season. “Easy Aces” follows the misadventures of malaprop-prone Jane Ace and her witty, intelligent husband, Goodman. Similar in style to the classic pairing of Burns and Allen, “Easy Aces” ran for 15 years on radio. The episode “Jane Serves on a Jury” finds Jane called to do her civic duty and giving the legal system a run for its money.
“Father Knows Best” premiered on radio in 1949 with Robert Young starring in the precursor to the popular television show of the late 50s and early 60s. “Aunt Martha and the Ball Game” explores the Anderson family’s dilemma when a visit from their aunt conflicts with the baseball tickets son Bud has won.
