Blondie
is a radio situation comedy adapted from the long-run Blondie comic
strip by Chic Young. The radio program was originally a summer replacement
for The Eddie Cantor Show. However, Cantor did not return in the fall, so the
sponsor, R.J. Reynolds’s Camel Cigarettes chose to keep Blondie on the air
from 1939 to 1950 on several networks.
