Welcome back to the Retro Radio Memories Podcast! Each week we will briefly talk about an old time radio episode before presenting it for your listening enjoyment. Today I have chosen an episode from 1948’s The Player entitled “Murder at Tamerlane”. This is a rather unique series as every single character in the story is voiced by the legendary Paul Frees!
If you have any comments or feedback for the show you can e-mail them to at VicSage@Retroist.com. You can also reach me on Twitter and of course on Facebook.
The classic George of the Jungle animated TV shorts of 1967 were the results of the legendary Jay Ward and Bill Scott, the duo also created The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show back in 1959. Jay Ward enjoyed the quality of the animation for George of the Jungle so much that he allowed the budgets to go over on each episode, which sadly resulted in the series lasting on 17 episodes in total. The animation for the show was handled by an American animation studio where the Rocky and Bullwinkle shows were created in Mexico. George of the Jungle featured not only the usual wonderful puns that Ward was famous for but we can hear the regular cast of Jay Ward voice actors Bill Scott, June Foray, and Paul Frees as well.
So take a break for yourself and enjoy this George of the Jungle episode entitled “The Malady Lingers On”.
