For over twenty years on radio, Jim and Marian Jordan (better known as "Fibber McGee and Molly") kept audiences in stitches with their unique blend of wordplay, running gags, and colorful characters. But the Jordans could also shine in dramatic roles - including their visits to Suspense. We'll hear the couple recreate their roles in an encore production of "Backseat Driver" (an Armed Forces Radio Service rebroadcast from February 22, 1951). Plus, we'll hear an episode of their classic radio sitcom (originally aired on NBC on June 4, 1946).
