Red Skelton's impressive gallery of comic characterizations didn't need to be seen to be hilarious! Through sound alone, he brought to life a "fellow from the country," an inept outlaw, a down-for-the-count boxer, a shady politician, a Brooklynese braggart...and a holy terror known as "Junior, the Mean Widdle Kid." To commemorate Skelton's centennial birthday, Radio Spirits presents this collection of previously uncirculated broadcasts. Three of these are rehearsal recordings, in which Red cuts loose with wild ad-libs and general tomfoolery that never fail to convulse both his regulars and the audience. This collection co-stars Verna Felton, Pat McGeehan, Anita Ellis, GeGe Pearson, Wonderful Smith, Lurene Tuttle and announcer Rod O'Connor.Episodes Include: People Who Worry 10-15-46; Man's Best Friend 10-22-46; Cheese It!
