Late Car Payment (Aired October 21, 1947)
Marian and Jim Jordan assumed the classic roles of Fibber McGee and Molly in the Merchandise Mart studios from the time of the show's inception in the spring of 1935 until their move to Southern California in the early months of 1939. The Jordans made their Chicago radio debut on WIBO and later moved on to WENR and WMAQ when the station was still owned by the Chicago Daily News. When NBC purchased WMAQ late 1931, the Jordans moved over to the Merchandise Mart where, next to Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll, they became the network's hottest Chicago properties. "Smackout" (which you can listen to) was their first hit. But "Marian and Jim" (as they were known in their early days) also popped up on any number of variety shows (including "The Breakfast Club") NBC pumped to the net or ran locally.
