In 1948, It was “The Brighter Day” for NBC Radio.

The show centered around the Dennisʹ and their extended family. Itʹs interesting to take a look at the cast and see which names are still recognizable, like Hal Holbrook and William Redfield. Some of the sponsors are still around, too — Ivory Soap flakes, Blue Cheer detergent and Hazel Bishop lipstick. The soap lasted for six years on radio, then moved to TV.

And Andy Kaufman lip-synching the “Mighty Mouse” theme song, the Muppets, an Albert Brooks film, five fake commercials, not one but two musical guests (Janis Ian, Billy Preston), and the sketch that NBC demands never be repeated — “Bee Hospital.” The show really takes off the following week when it highlighted by the reunion of host Paul Simon with his former partner, Art Garfunkel.

Lovely but unlucky star Julia Campbell is sentenced to the first of what will be five failed sitcoms.
