The Bread Shortage And The Black Market
The Life of Riley was an American situation old time radio show, co-developed by the non-performing Marx Brother, Gummo, that appeared on both radio and television in the 1940s and 1950s and helped introduce the so-called “nuclear family” to American broadcasting.
The radio version, starring William Bendix, debuted on ABC in 1944; the following year it moved to NBC, where it ran until 1951. Later, the show was adapted for television, with two different versions having been produced.
William Bendix stars in “The Bread Shortage and the Black Market” , which aired on NBC Radio on June 8, 1946.
