This episode spans March 4 to May 27 1936.
We are lucky that Soundscape #5 is featuring Fred Allen.
Fred was a legendary wit, his improvisational style and warmth made him a favorite in Vaudeville, on the radio and later on television.
His partner in show biz and real life, Portland Hoffa, was one of the most popular Dumb Dora character actors of her era, second only to the great Gracie Allen.
