Rank #17: Podcast #156 The Story of DR Kildare

Podcast cover

In the summer of 1949, MGM reunited Lew Ayres and Lionel Barrymore to record the radio series, The Story of Dr. Kildare, which used the concept and characters of the earlier Young Dr. Kildare story and did not include any of the young doctors who had replaced Kildare in the later films featuring Dr. Gillespie. By this time, Ayres had returned to public favor after serving in WWII as a medical corpsman. Episodes were scripted by James Moser, Jean Holloway, Les Crutchfield, E. Jack Newman, John Michael Hayes, Joel Murcott, and others. The supporting cast included Ted Osborne as hospital administrator Dr. Carew, Eleanor Audley as receptionist Molly Byrd, Jane Webb as nurse Mary Lamont, and Virginia Gregg as nurse Evangeline Parker, labeled “Nosy Parker” by Gillespie. In addition, many prominent West Coast radio actors made recurring appearances, including Raymond Burr, William Conrad, Stacy Harris, Lurene Tuttle, Barton Yarborough, and Jack Webb.

Rank #19: Podcast #115 Amos and Andy

Podcast cover
Read more
Set in Harlem, Amos and Andy centered around the activities of George Stevens aka Kingfish, a guy who was always looking for a way to make a fast buck. As head of the Mystic Knights of the Sea Lodge, he got most of the lodge brothers involved in his schemes. That put him at odds not only with them, but with his wife, Sapphire, and her mother. Mama, in particular, didn’t trust him at all. Andy Brown was the most gullible of the lodge members, a husky, well-meaning, but rather simple soul. The Kingfish was constantly trying to swindle him in one way or another, but the “big dummy” (as Kingfish called him) kept coming back for more. More often than not, Kingfish would get them both into trouble, but win Andy’s cooperation with an appeal to fraternal spirit–“Holy mackerel, Andy! We’s all got to stick together in dis heah thing… remember, we is brothers in that great fraternity, the Mystic Knights of the Sea.” We hope you enjoy the 4 episodes of Amos and Andy we’ve selected for you this week, including the touching Christmas episode. Enjoy and have a great Weekend!!
