My Favorite Husband hit the CBS Radio airwaves in 1948, starring Lucille Ball and Richard Denning as Liz and George Cugat - who later became Liz and George Cooper when confusion with bandleader Xavier Cugat prompted a name change. Set in the fictitious town of Sheridan Falls, the show follows the happily married couple, residents of 321 Bundy Drive, through mischief and various predicaments, from faked illnesses to trouble with exes. George, a banker, and Liz, a housewife, were billed as ´´two people who live together and like it.´´ The beloved series eventually transitioned to television in 1953, recast with Joan Caulfield and Barry Nelson, as Lucille Ball was busy filming the megahit I Love Lucy with her real-life husband Desi Arnaz. Episodes include ´´The Quiz Show´´, ´´Katy and Roscoe´´, ´´Piano and Violin Lessons´´, ´´April Fool´s Day´´, ´´Liz and George Reminisce´´, ´´The Surprise Halloween Party´´, ´´Vacation Time´´, ´´Learning to Drive´´, ´´Selling Dresses´´, and ´´George Is Messy´´. 1.

Instant New York Times Best SellerThe first definitive, unauthorized, behind-the-scenes cultural history of the Bachelor franchise, America´s favorite guilty pleasure.For 15 years and 35 seasons, the Bachelor franchise has been a mainstay in American TV viewers´ lives. Since it premiered in 2002, the show´s popularity and relevance has only grown - more than eight million viewers tuned in to see the conclusion of the most recent season of The Bachelor.The iconic reality television show´s reach and influence into the cultural zeitgeist is undeniable. Best-selling writers and famous actors live tweet about it. Die-hard fans - dubbed ´´Bachelor Nation´´ - come together every week during each season to participate in fantasy leagues and viewing parties.Bachelor Nation is the first behind-the-scenes, unauthorized look into the reality television phenomenon. Los Angeles Times journalist Amy Kaufman is a proud member of Bachelor Nation and has a long history with the franchise - ABC even banned her from attending show events after her coverage of the program got a little too real for its liking. She has interviewed dozens of producers, contestants, and celebrity fans to give readers never-before-told details of the show´s inner workings: what it´s like to be trapped in the mansion ´´bubble´´; dark, juicy tales of producer manipulation; and revelations about the alcohol-fueled debauchery that occurs long before the fantasy suite.Kaufman also explores what our fascination means, culturally: what the show says about the way we view so-called ideal suitors, our subconscious yearning for fairy-tale romance, and how this enduring television show has shaped society´s feelings about love, marriage, and feminism by appealing to a marriage plot that´s as old as Jane Austen. 1.

Ho ho ho! Here´s what to listen to while driving to the mall, wrapping gifts, entertaining friends, or relaxing in front of a crackling holiday fire. In Scott Simon´s modern version of the Christmas story, Jesus is born in an abandoned factory near Cleveland and the Three Wise Persons bring Chipotle gift cards. Claudia Sanchez gives a Latin accent to ´´A Visit from St. Nicholas´´. Barbara Bradley Hagerty explores what Christmas means for the boy choristers of the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. (Hint: Handel). In a treasured 1974 recording, humorist, author, radio personality, and blacklisting victim John Henry Faulk tells of ´´the wonderfulest Christmas in the United States of America´´. A son believed missing in action during WWII is found in time for his family to celebrate the holiday. And a Vietnam veteran tells Weekend Edition Sunday about a ´´Silent Night´´ that brought hope to patients in a military hospital. And that´s just the star-topped tip of the tree. Each year, listeners tune into NPR for holiday offerings of all kinds: funny, touching, insightful, and surprising. Now anyone can listen anytime to these evergreen delights. 1. Language: English.
