RADIO SHOW DEBUTED ON THIS DATE IN 1945

radio 

Those Websters was a radio situation comedy series starring Willard Waterman
(shown below) and Constance Crowder as George and Jane Webster. The program
was launched in New York and then moved to Chicago for a short spell before finishing its run from Hollywood. It was heard Friday evenings at 9:30pm on CBS from March 9, 1945 to February 22, 1946 with Quaker Oats as the sponsor. On March 3, 1946, the series moved to Mutual where it aired Sundays at 6pm until August 22, 1948. Two years after this series came to an end, Waterman replaced Harold Peary as the title character in The Great Gildersleeve in 1950.
