The radio program Vic and Sade was created and written by Paul Rhymer. It
was regularly broadcast on radio (NBC/CBS) from 1932 to 1944, then heard
intermittently until 1946, and was briefly adapted to television in 1949 and
again in 1957.

During its 14-year run on radio, Vic and Sade became one of the most
popular series of its kind, earning critical and popular success: according
to Time, Vic and Sade had 7,000,000 devoted listeners in 1943. For the
majority of its span on the air, Vic and Sade was heard in 15-minute
episodes without a continuing storyline. The central characters, known
as "radio’s home folks," were accountant Victor Rodney Gook (Art Van
), his wife Sade (Bernardine Flynn) and their adopted son Rush played
by (Bill Idelson).
