Anyone remember The Alan Young Radio Show ?.
I'm afraid I missed this series of the early 1950s. The Korean War really detracted from my television watching during those years, but I was wondering if anyone remembered the original "Alan Young Show" on the radio (NBC) in the late 1940s.

As a kid living in Brooklyn at the time I could ride the subway for a nickle to the RCA (now the GE) building and have access to some of the best live entertainment available free of charge. I would see "The Perry Como Show" in Studio 6A and then walk across the lobby to Studio^B for the Alan Young Show". The show had a terrific cast that included a not-very- well-known Jim Backus as Alan's rival for girlfriend Betty, and Ed Begley as Betty's father. Backus used his upper-class aristocratic accent that became very well known years later when he played the millionaire on "Gillligan's Island". Begley of course later enjoyed a long career as a fine dramatic actor in films and on stage.

Any other old-timers who remember ?
