THE MARTIN AND LEWIS RADIO SHOW
Dean and Jerry started their radio show together in 1949. These shows prove how maniacally funny and impromptu Jerry really was, and well as Dean who went right along with the ad lib zaniness.
You will hear their secretary with the funny nasal voice, named "Flo." Well, this really is Flo. Florence MacDaniel, and if you want a good look at her, look her up on "Mr. Ed" shows as Wilbur's neighbor "Winnie" and her husband "Col. Kirkwood" (Leon Ames). I always loved Winnie, and when I found out she was also Dean and Jerry's secretary "Flo," I said "Wow."
These radio shows will not only entertain you, but show you how very funny Dean and Jerry were, especially Jerry with his ad libs. The speed of the shows is fast and the funnies come at you like machine gun fire. So, be prepared.
