Alan Young Show Old Time Radio Program

Alan Young Show
½ hour comedy program

The Alan Young Show began on NBC radio as a summer replacement situation comedy in 1944, featuring vocalist Bea Wain. It moved to ABC with Jean Gillespie portraying Young's girlfriend Betty. The program was next broadcast by NBC for a 1946-47 run and was off in 1948. When it returned to NBC in 1949, Louise Erickson played Betty and Jim Backus was heard as snobbish playboy Hubert Updike III. The show is a mixture of situation comedy, music, and stand up jokes.

In 1950 The Alan Young Show moved to television as a variety, sketch comedy show, taking an 11-month hiatus in 1952. When it returned for its final season in 1953, the tone and format of the show changed into the more conventional sitcom

Alan Young was born in Canada in 1919. He came to love radio when bedridden as a child because of severe asthma. Young was a broadcaster for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. In 1944, he moved to American radio with The Alan Young Show. His career had some ups and downs, in radio he was always the up and coming next big star, without actually becoming the big star. He had more success when he moved to television, particularly in the Mister Ed Show.
