E37. My Friend Irma: Wall Street Magazine Contest (11/22/1948)

Season 1, Ep. 37

Join host, Carl Amari, for an exciting re-broadcast of My Friend Irma. Featuring narration by Marie Wilson and Cathy Lewis.

Originating as a radio series created by writer-producer-director Cy Howard in 1947, My Friend Irma was a successful, long-running radio situation comedy that escalated into film, television, and even a comic strip helmed by none other than Marvel's Stan Lee. Dependable, level-headed Jane Stacy (Cathy Lewis) began each weekly radio program by narrating a misadventure of her innocent, bewildered roommate Irma (Marie Wilson), a scatterbrained stenographer from Minnesota. Immensely popular right from the series debut on CBS radio, My Friend Irma's legacy would go on to be cemented with the 1949 film of the same name, featuring both Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis in early roles for their career.

Originally airing 11/22/1948, gather around for this classic radio situation comedy in "Wall Street Magazine Contest," with Irma Peterson!
