Our Miss Brooks - Mr Conklin's Blood Pressure - July 2, 1949 - Sitcom
One of my favorite sitcoms both on radio and television was Madison High School's Connie Brooks... the English Teacher... Our Miss Brooks. This sitcom with an incredibly talented supporting cast of Richard Crenna, Gale Gordon, Jeff Chandler, Jane Morgan, Gloria McMillan, Leonard Smith, Mary Jane Croft, Isabel Randolph, and Minerva (Mrs. Davis's cat) made this show one of the most popular comedies on radio. It had a 9 year run on CBS from 1948-57. From 1952-56 it was adapted for television and lasted much longer in re-runs. More "Our Miss Brooks" in the "Comedy" playlist.
