176-130930 In the Old-Time Radio Corner - Abie's Irish Rose

Abie's Irish Rose opened on Broadway and ran for six and a half years - at the time, the longest Broadway run ever.  (The record was finally broken 40 years later by Hello, Dolly.)

The plot was simple:  A Jewish boy marries a Catholic girl, against their families' wishes. 

Two movie versions were made, and a radio version ran on NBC from 1942 to 1944.  This episode, Abie Buys a New Jersey store, was originally broadcast on January 13, 1943.
