I really loved Jess Oppenheimer's story of the beginnings and inside workings of the I Love Lucy Show. I could not put it down. There were 3 parts of this audio book. The story performed by the narrator who was very pleasant and easy to listen to, then Jess Openheimer's son did an old time radio play performance of the story (with some great old stars performing), then Jess Oppenheimer in his own voice telling the story - all in a little over 4 hours. Loved each version. CBS thought I Love Lucy was the show that no one would ever want to watch reruns of. Imagine.

Wonderful first-hand account of the pioneer days of TV, before it became such a complex high-stakes industry . . . and way before it self-shattered into a "Reality" factory that majored in artifice and contrivance and stage-managed spontaneity. No, these were the wonderful days when talent was ENOUGH!! Magnificent story, well told and presented.
