Chester Lauck and Norris Goff were first heard as Lum and Abner on a radio fundraiser for flood victims. The lifelong friends had prepared to perform a blackface act but discovered many similar acts waiting to audition. Improvising the spot, they went on the air as the "fellers from the hills" and won a regular spot on KTHS beginning April 26, 1931. Lum and Abner moved into an NBC summer berth July 27, 1931 and aired nationally from May 22, 1933 through May 7, 1954.
