The sitcom Vic and Sade was created and written by Paul Rhymer. It was aired 
regularly on NBC radio from 1932 to 1944, then 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, the
program  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 Harvey), his wife Sade (Bernardine Flynn) and their
adopted son Rush (Bill Idelson).
