In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Dec 31, 2013

Al Pearce was on the air for almost two decades.  His show was mostly broad vaudeville-style humor, the type that ages poorly. 

But Al brought to radio many future stars - Morey Amsterdam, Yogi Yorgesson, Lord Bilgewater, Eb and Zeb, and fast-talking Arlene Harris.

And Al himself was famous for his shy door-to-door salesman character, Elmer Blurt. 

This episode, from March 6, 1940, features special guest star Gene Autry.
