Alternate Versions

When the show transitioned from live broadcasts to film in the third season, found himself footing the bill and decided to drop the "Love Nest" theme which had been utilized in both the original radio series and the first two seasons of the show to avoid paying royalties. During the third season a stock music "theme" from the Mutel music library was utilized; for the fourth season 's "Two-a-Day" was used. "Love Nest" returned in the fifth season and replaced the other two themes for syndicated reruns.
