215-140630 In the Old-Time Radio Corner - The Magnificent Montague

The radio sitcom The Magnificent Montague was created by Nat Hiken, who was a comedy writer for Fred Allen and Milton Berle. 

He later created You'll Never Get Rich (The Phil Silvers Show) and Car 54, Where Are You. 

The star of The Magnificent Montague was Monty Wooley, a college professor turned actor. 

He starred in both the Broadway production and movie version of The Man Who Came to Dinner before he went into radio.

Montague was a Shakespearean actor who had fallen on hard times and had to take a job as - gasp! - a RADIO actor!

This is the first episode.  It aired on November 10, 1950.
