Aldrich Family | Old Time Radio

One of old time radio's funniest shows got it's start associating itself with Kate Smith, Rudy Vallee, and Jack Benny.Before going onto become it's own free-standing show. By 1941 it was one of America's Top Ten shows.

The Aldrich Family old time radio show was centered around the life of a teenage boy, Henry Aldrich. Poor Henry Aldrich was always getting into trouble, sitting in the principal's office, or getting caught up in some sort of hilarious situation. Each show started out with........"Hen-reeee! henry Aldrich" and then it went on to chronicle Henry Aldrich and all of his mis-adventures.

The main characters in the show were his parents, Sam & Alice, his girlfriend Kathleen, and his buddies Homer Brown and Dizzy Stevens. A show that became wildly popular, and for good reason, it's a great show. In 1941 The Aldrich Family had a 33.4 Crossley rating. What that number means is that this typical teenage old time radio show was now as popular as Jack Benny and Bob Hope.

The show hit home in the sense that although it was aimed at a juvenile audience, everyone, of all ages tuned in to hear what Henry was going to mess up next. The Aldrich Family had a long run on old time radio, from 1939 to 1953. It was just the classic sit-com style show.

But Henry Aldrich's antics lived on besides radio. In a five year span (1939-1944) Paramount Pictures released 11 Aldrich Family movies. There was also a comic book series, and it was a TV series for four years as well. This is great old time radio comedy here, if you like shows like My Friend Irma, Archie Andrews, or Blondie, you'll like The Aldrich Family. Besides his parents, there were many recurring characters in the show. Maybe this one should be more appropriately named Henry Aldrich, because the scripts were all about Henry.

Enjoy the 99 classic episodes on this great MP3 CD. Each episode is approximately 30 minutes long.
