My Favorite Husband

Recommended Posts

This thread's pretty old but I wonder if any "new" episodes of My Favorite Husband have surfaced in the meantime?

 

 

New episodes?  Do you NOT have access to the site for ALL episodes?

Not that I'm aware of. I know some survive that I don't have but I hope to acquire them one day.

I'm not sure which site you mean. The most episodes I've seen in one place is here: https://archive.org/details/MyFavoriteHusband_866

Me too. I'm still holding out hope that in time the entire show will be available. Maybe that's just too optimistic a dream.

I doubt the entire show will ever come to light. Some episodes are simply lost to time.

I wish these was definitive information on just what is extant and available. And these really must be officially released in some fashion.

If you'll go to the lucylibrary.com site, it tells which episodes are available for purchase on certain select episodes.

If anyone is interested, here is the 1942 film adaptation of Isabel Scott Rorick's Mr. and Mrs. Cugat book, Are Husbands Necessary?. Ray Milland and Betty Field play George and Liz and Patricia Morison plays Myra Ponsonby. Other characters include the Atterburys and Cory Cartwright. There's a great cast of character actors including Charles Lane.

Thanks for this! I never knew there was a film version. Look forward to checking it out.

Supposedly there are surviving portions of the original pilot with Lee Bowman somewhere, but I've never heard it.

 

There may be more episodes out there somewhere, but none that are accounted for. Maybe some copies will be relocated one day.

 

I'm in the process of trying to put together as complete and high-quality a collection as possible. I've ripped all the episodes appearing on the ILL DVD sets, and I'm in the process of transferring a number of episodes from the Radio Spirits tapes, many of which are better quality than the ones commonly circulating the internet at the moment.

 

I'll upload this collection when it's ready.

Would you possibly be able to post a link to the mp3s you ripped from the DVDs?  I'm trying to figure out how to rip mine but am having trouble.  Any help would be appreciated ;)

Is there any thought about whether we'll ever see the release of a "complete" (or as complete as possible!) box (or even digitally, a la iTunes et. al.) of MFH?? Sure would be nice! :blink:

I don't think CBS has any plans, although it appears they are certainly open to leasing it to other companies.  Years ago Radio Spirits put out a large number of episodes (with the help of Gregg O.), and most recently CBS has been leasing shows to Blackeye entertainment.    http://www.amazon.com/Favorite-Husband-Vol-Hollywood-360/dp/1483022536/ref=sr_1_7_twi_aud_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1465139827&sr=8-7&keywords=my+favorite+husband,  Also a Lucy set:  http://www.amazon.com/Classic-Radio-Spotlights-Lucille-Ball/dp/B01E9HTADC/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1465139948&sr=8-9&keywords=lucille+ball+radio

Listening to My Favorite Husband during production day, I came across a scene I had either missed or completely forgotten, with the Coopers and Atterburys listenin to Bibbidy-Bobbidy-Boo:

Hilarious! :marionstrong:

Yes, the radio spirits release included that scene. It might have been cut from some of the downloadable edits.

 

"You cut off her boo!"

I know this message has come some years later since I posted in 2012 about this radio show.  I have just yesterday uploaded all the episodes I have to archive.org.  I have included the Health Farm episode which seems to be unavailable.  I hope you all enjoy.  I welcome any feedback on any inaccuracies in the episodes and the dates and titles etc.  Also if anyone has longer versions or better quality audio for any of the episodes please let me know.  It would be great to have definitive archive of the show for everyone to enjoy.  Follow this link...

Thank you so much for that wonderful collection, Mikey! I've just previewed the Health Farm show and am amazed at the quality. I'll give the whole package a listen and if I can help you out in any way, I will, but you've certainly done a remarkable job!
