DUFFY'S TAVERN
Millions of radio listeners visited Duffy's Tavern each week, but Duffy himself was nowhere to be found. Perhaps Duffy was shy around celebrities or maybe he had somewhere better to be than the run-down saloon that bore his name. Although he dutifully phoned Archie the manager each week, he never once dropped by. Duffy's Tavern first opened its doors to radio listeners on the CBS audition series Forecast on July 29, 1940, and then opened for regular business on March 1, 1941. Duffy's Tavern was a New York dive that featured terrible food, worse service and big-name celebrity guests. The low-life denizens of the tavern hobnobbed each week with the biggest stars in Hollywood. Duffy's Tavern closed its doors on January 18, 1952. Starring Ed Gardner.
