Dan and Tom discuss the long-running radio sitcom Fibber McGee & Molly. Married couple Jim and Marion Jordan play Fibber & Molly, a married couple who have a weekly radio program that just sort of magically happens around them. We talk about the pre-history of the show (the 1931 – 1933 show Smackout!), the vagabond years (when Fibber and Molly lived in their car), and the long-running retconned formula, when they settled down to happy domesticity.
