Great Gildersleeve: Vol. 2: Starring Willard Waterman

4 hours


The Great Gildersleeve is a favorite of radio fans, with fine writing, engaging characters, and a brillant blend of comedy and drama that set a high water mark for classic sitatuation comedy.

Set in the small town of Summerfield, Willard Waterman is featured as the local Water Commissioner, struggling to successfully raise his niece Marjorie (Marylee Robb) and his precocious nephew Leroy (Walter Tetley), while also courting some of the town's more attractive female residents. As the 20 programs in this collection demonstrate, The Great Gildersleeve is one of the true classics of radio, emphasising a gentle humor that grows out of realistic characters and situations, and remains an endearing family show that is just as amusing and charming today as when it was first aired.
