The Great Gildersleeve
Volume 10

Although the title of the program was The Great Gildersleeve, as much of the charm of the show came from the supporting cast and townsfolk of Summerfield as it did from Gildy. Of course, Leroy and Marjorie, Gildersleeve’s charges, and Birdie Lee added a particular spark to the comedic family antics of the show, Summerfield itself boasted a few citizens that also made their mark. From Forrest Peavey, the twangy pharmacist to Leila Ransom, the widow with her sets sight on Gildy, these and more characters helped elevate The Great Gildersleeve from being just another comedy show to one that struck a funny and often loving chord with its audience.
 
Gildersleeve may have been the man of the house, but Birdie, the maid, ran things in the home on The Great Gildersleeve. Originally written in an unfortunately stereotypical style, Birdie over time was revealed as the real brains behind the operation of the family she took care of. This was due in part to writers wanting a more realistic portrayal of the character, but also much credit must be given to actress Lillian Randolph. She brought a whole range of emotions to the role of Birdie, from a joyous laugh to a compassion unmatched when necessary.
 
Discover why The Great Gildersleeve is not only considered a great comedy, but also one of the best shows of classic radio in this collection of 12 original broadcasts, as they originally aired from March to June 1944. Listen to The Great Gildersleeve, Volume 10, restored to sparkling digital quality.
