THE ONE AND ONLY GROUCHO

 

REPS Presents returns for another broadcast celebrating the Golden Age of Radio.  This week we remember  a unique comedy legend – – the one and only Groucho!

First up it’s The Marx Bros Show from 1935

We start off the program with a rarely heard un-aired audition episode Of the Marx Brother Show from 1935. Groucho and Chico pose as Hollywood agents.  Some pundits speculate that this show was a poke at Zeppo’s new career.

It’s so much fun!

Birdseye Open House from April 19 , 1945

For the second part of REPS Presents features the Birdseye Frosted Foods program Birdseye Open House with Ginny Sims. In this broadcast we find Ginny Sims pinch-hitting for Dinah Shore who was the star of the program.   Ginny Sims welcome’s Groucho Marx as the weekly guest star.   Robert Emmett Dolan and his Orchestra and Joe Lilly and his chorus. Ginny Sims opens the show singing Begin the Beguine.

 

Recently we had the pleasure to speak for a few short moments  with screen legend Margaret O’Brien. We will finish off this weeks program by sharing this brief but enjoyable interview.

Margaret O’Brien will be appearing at the REPS SHOWCASE this coming April 21-22 in Bellevue, Washington.
