GOLDEN CLASSIC RADIO SHOWS

01-02-2024 • 14 min

Lum and Abner! A classic radio show that brought laughter to millions of Americans from 1931 to 1954. Here's what I can tell you about it:The Show:
  • Premise: Lum Edwards and Abner Peabody, two friends with very different personalities, run the Jot 'Em Down store in the fictional town of Pine Ridge, Arkansas. The show follows their daily misadventures, get-rich-quick schemes, and interactions with the quirky townsfolk.
  • Characters:
    • Lum: The practical and cautious one, often exasperated by Abner's harebrained ideas.
    • Abner: The dreamer and schemer, always looking for a way to make a quick buck.
    • Grandpappy Spears: Lum's grumpy but wise grandfather, always dispensing homespun advice.
    • Squire Skimp: The town's con artist and Lum's foil, always trying to cheat him out of money.
    • Cora: Lum's wife, often the voice of reason in the midst of chaos.
    • And many more!
  • Humor: The show's humor was based on slapstick, wordplay, and gentle satire of small-town life. It was known for its catchphrases like "Ain't that somethin'?" and "By heck, Abner!"
  • Popularity: Lum and Abner was one of the most popular radio shows of its time, reaching over 20 million listeners at its peak. It was also one of the first shows to be sponsored by a major corporation, Kraft Foods.
  • Legacy: The show's influence can still be seen in modern sitcoms, and its characters are considered icons of American pop culture.
