Phil Harris had a long and varied career in radio, on record, and in film. He played Jack Benny's drunken bandleader on his radio show, provided the voice of Baloo in The Jungle Book and had a big novelty hit with "The Thing." He even pulled off the '70s equivalent of the daily double by guest starring on both The Love Boat and Fantasy Island. This Radio Archives release from 1999 collects two episodes of the radio show he had with his wife, actress Alice Faye, between 1947 and 1955. The humor still holds up pretty well and is a treat for fans of radio comedy.
