In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Sep 24, 2013

Abe Burrows was a New York wit, a composer/singer of clever parodies that made him a favorite of Danny Kaye, Robert Benchley, and Groucho Marx. 

He also wrote Broadway musicals, like Breakfast at Tiffany's, Can-Can, and Guys and Dolls.  And he won a Pulitzer Prize for How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. 

His radio show ran from 1947 to 1949, and since it was just 15 minutes nightly, this show is comprised of two back-to-back episodes.
