BOLD VENTURE & ARCHIE ANDREWS


This week, we have two programs we’ve never presented before. Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall had their own adventure radio series in the 1950s, “Bold Venture.” It was part “Casablanca” and part “African Queen.” Bogie plays the proprietor of a Havana hotel frequented by conmen, gamblers, and treasure hunters, and every week brought the couple adventure and excitement. Next, it’s America’s favorite bow-tie-wearing redhead, “Archie Andrews.” Light on the adventure, but high on the domestic comedy and teen-aged shenanigans, here Archie finds the simple act of getting dressed for a date to be quite a challenge.
