Publisher's Summary

Here's one of radio's greatest comic rivalries: the blustery W. C. Fields facing off against the impudent Charlie McCarthy! You'll also hear Don Ameche, Dorothy Lamour, Nelson Eddy, and some guy named Edgar Bergen! The pomposity of Fields' comic persona clashes spectacularly with Charlie's, the foe of the haughty and the self-absorbed, in their no-holds-barred feud. Before and after their battles, the more composed Bergen plays host to a variety of guest stars, including Carole Lombard, Hoagy Carmichael, Rodgers & Hart, and more. These nine digitally remastered episodes feature Fields' first and last appearances as a regular cast member and his last appearance as a guest.

The Dummy and the Drunk.

This was a great show. Bergen & McCarthy and W. C. Fields what a great triple act. Their mock feud almost lasted a Decade. They were making fun with each other until the last year of Fields life. This audio also has guest stars like Abbott and Costello and Dorothy Lamore. This was classic humor at its best
