Duration: 7 hours 54 minutes
Enjoy sixteen classic radio episodes starring the incomparable Lucille Ball, including several episodes from her regular radio series My Favorite Husband.
As Lucy Ricardo, Lucille Ball brought a tomboy’s enthusiasm and a scatterbrained quality to the long-running I Love Lucy (1951–61) television program. She was the wacky wife making life difficult for her loving but perpetually irritated husband, Ricky Ricardo (played by Ball’s real-life husband, Desi Arnaz). Long before I Love Lucy, Ball worked her way up Hollywood’s ladder with appearances in films and in many radio shows, including dramatic roles where she could really show her acting chops.
In the summer of 1948, Ball accepted the role of Liz Cooper, a zany housewife who found herself facing comical situations, in the radio comedy My Favorite Husband. In the radio series, Lucille Ball’s husband, George Cooper, was played by veteran actor Richard Denning. This collection showcases Ball’s amazing spectrum of radio work, from comedy to drama and everything in between.
