Because of The Old-Time Radio Hour, my husband and I have been enjoying Thanksgiving themed old time radio shows while we cook our Thanksgiving dinner. I never realized the difficulty ordinary people had in securing a turkey for the holiday! That theme has been one of the running gags of some of the broadcasts, but all the shows are good fun, and each tackles the holiday in its own character-appropriate way. The shows include such classics as the Burns and Allen Show, The Great Gildersleeve, The Jack Benny Program, The Life of Riley, and Our Miss Brooks.
