54-04-15

This is one of the 15-minute shows from the later days of the show, so it's less complicated but still mildly amusing.

Fibber and Molly run Doc Gamble to the airport, then make the mistake of taking the new highway on their way home.

Interesting to note that the Doc had a phone in his car in 1954, though it probably came with a wheelbarrow-load of radio equipment in the trunk.

What I like about this episode is that Fibber's reaction to being on the busy highway is exactly the same as mine Wink

FIBBER McGEE & MOLLY 1944-01-25 “Dining Out”

The McGees decide to go out night-clubbing (to celebrate their laundry coming back!) but find it difficult to find a suitable night spot. What do they say about the bluebird of happiness?

Includes the first appearance of Beulah, who would later become a regular on the show (though I’ve never felt her presence added anything to 79 Wistful Vista). Always good for a smile.

    Here are really nice copies of the above episodes . . .

    Fibber & Molly 1944-01-25 (0388) Dining Out

    Fibber & Molly 1954-04-15 (0878) Freeway Ride

    Several notes about these episodes.
    These are from the now famous diadeloso set that have been generously provided and are now hosted by Phineus at the 154. I have re-encoded them from 256kbps stereo to 128kbps mono. They take up less space and are easier to download this way. I don't hear any difference in the sound as they were never recorded in stereo anyway.

    Enjoy!

Victor, I agree with you. I don't see the point in recording old mono shows at 256k -- the only difference seems to be that you get an enormous file to download.

"Dining Out" is a great episode too, BTW.
I've wondered if the whole laundry-being-returned is a dated reference that we don't understand today. Were launderers that undependable sixty years ago?

But still, a fun episode.
