Our Miss Brooks was a long running and popular CBS Old Time Radio show. It began airing in 1948 and lasted until 1957. In fact it was so widely received that it spawned a TV adaptation from 1952 until 1956. Furthermore it even was made into a feature length movie!

Of course since this is the beginning of December. Our episode this week is entitled “Magic Christmas Tree”. Which focuses on Miss Brooks, who is played by Eve Arden, finding herself alone on Christmas Eve. Thanks in no small part to an enterprising young boy, she finds that she had purchased more than a festive tree. It is as the boy tells her, in fact a magic Christmas tree. Which naturally means that hilarity ensues shortly after the purchase and maybe a little wish fulfillment too.
Now this isn’t the first time we’ve visited Our Miss Brooks!
Thanks to listener Rick Doherty we talked about this show on the 57th episode of the podcast. Truth be told he has also suggested an appropriately holiday themed episode later in the month.
So without further ado, pour yourself a cup of eggnog, and join us for Retro Radio Memories. As we get into the Holiday Spirit with Our Miss Brooks!
