FROM RADIO’S HEYDAY

Harold Peary as Throckmorton Philharmonic Gildersleeve, on the NBC
radio show The Great Gildersleeve. It aired August 31, 1941 to 1957. It
was one of broadcast history’s earliest spin-off programs having been
a staple on the classic radio sitcom Fiber McGee and Molly.

During the show’s 1950 summer hiatus, Peary had contracted with CBS
radio and was legally unable to appear on NBC as a star performer, thus
prompting the hiring of Willard Waterman as Peary’s replacement.
