| Love, Life & Leila Ransom
Join Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve as he raises his orphaned niece and nephew in the small town of Summerfield in this critically acclaimed radio comedy spun off from the popular Fibber McGee & Molly radio series. Set against the backdrop of American life early in World War II, listen and laugh as Gildersleeve becomes the Water Commissioner and romances the widow Leila Ransom while trying to cope with local politics, wartime rationing, women in the workplace, and the mysteries of love with ensuing hilarity. Harold Peary stars as Gildersleeve and is joined by an outstanding group of supporting players including Walter Tetley as Leroy, Lurene Tuttle as Marjorie, Lillian Randolph as Birdie, Shirley Mitchell as Leila Ransom, Earle Ross as Judge Hooker, Richard LeGrand as Mr. Peavy, and Arthur Q. Bryan as Floyd the Barber. This 8 CD digitally remastered audio collection features 16 episodes as broadcast during the classic 1942-43 second season of this series that aired for more than 15 years during the Golden Age of Radio. Also included is a Program Booklet with photographs and an essay by noted radio historian Anthony Tollin.
