Weekend OTR: It Pays to be Ignorant — Married Men Live Longer
What’s on tap for this week? A quiz show. Those were hugely successful during the golden age of radio, but this one is a little different. It Pays to Be Ignorant was a panel show, but one that was more than a bit different — the panel of experts was full of people who went out of their way to know less than contestants.
Now, that’s what I call comedy. These were recorded in front of a studio audience and the panel was typically stocked with three vaudeville veterans who spent a good part of the show confused and tossing out one-liners. Fun? You’d better believe it.
As always, this episode is brought to you by our good friends at OTRCat.com. People who routinely stop by for our Weekend OTR series know that The Cat has consistently supported our efforts to bring First Arkansas News readers some of the best old time radio shows recorded. If you’re in the market for some OTR programs and like the idea of saving money, you owe it to yourself to pay the cat a visit.
By the way, the title of this episode brings to mind an old riddle:
Q: Why do men die before their wives?
A: Because they want to.
Yeah, that’s just awful.
At any rate, click the below player and enjoy this week’s show.
