For her final appearances on Suspense, Lucille Ball was joined by her then-husband Desi Arnaz. But unlike I Love Lucy, where they played for laughs, Lucy and Desi were cast in radio thrillers: tales of greed and menace. We’ll hear one of those shows – “The Red-Headed Woman,” originally aired on CBS on November 17, 1949. Then, we’ll hear an episode of My Favorite Husband, the Lucille Ball radio sitcom that led to the creation of I Love Lucy (originally aired on CBS on January 28, 1949).
