Father Knows Best
Volume 5


The end of World War II brought much change in the world and in American Society. As the middle class gained more money, Suburbia grew and the face of the United States changed and entertainment changed right along with it. A prime example of radio reflecting 1950s life can be heard on Father Knows Best, Volume 5 from Radio Archives.

In its initial incarnation, Father Knows Best was not much different than similar situation comedies of the period. However, by 1949, it became something quite unique for the period, a solid, well-written portrayal of typical Midwestern family life with a surprising emphasis on well-shaded characters, rather than outlandish situations, to bring out the humorous side of suburban life.

Played by Robert Young, the title character of Jim Anderson is a successful insurance salesman living in Springfield with his wife Margaret and their three children: Betty, Bud, and Kathy. Thanks to excellent writing and the outstanding acting talents of the principals, these hilarious slices of everyday life rise above the norm to make Father Knows Best one of the highlight series of late-era network radio entertainment.

Heard today, Father Knows Best still hilariously reflects the interpersonal relationships of a typical American family. Regardless if it's the 1950s or the 21st Century, certain aspects of raising a family never change and remain hilariously consistent. Peek into the past and find a bit of yourself in Father Knows Best, Volume 5 from Radio Archives!
