Brassy. Bold. Booming. Belligerent. And that's just the band!
Struggling to make his down-and-out orchestra plucky and profitable, Phil Harris conducts his zany sidekick, winsome wife, precocious kids, and grouchy grocery boy through a symphony of silliness. If you long for a series where the drinks are stiff and the whimsy is wicked, you've come to the right place!
This 10 CD set includes 20 digitally restored and remastered episodes, many of which are available for the first time anywhere. These rare broadcasts are prime examples of the flagrant fun, garish gaiety, and notorious nonsense that Phil and Alice brought to listeners on Sunday nights in 1954.
Includes a Program Guide by Jim Cox.
