Radio Days Weren’t So Trivial

One of the very few advantages of being so darned old is that I remember the glorious days of Radio. Yes, before television, families sat around their floor-model radios in the evening and let their imagination do wonderful tricks as we listened to very popular radio shows. So, get your grandparents to help you answer the following:

1. “It’s a bird! It’s a plane!” These were the opening words of what popular show?

2. Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll played all the parts in what radio show, which was the radio sensation of the 1930s?

3. What show featured the noise of our hero opening his closet followed by the sounds of all the contents falling on the floor?

4. What show always began with the playing of the William Tell Overture?

5. Whose show featured the Mean Little Kid and Clem Kadiddlehopper?

6. What bandleader had a quiz show called “That’s Wrong, You’re Right”
