Thanksgiving Show 1944, Abbott & Costello

Thanksgiving, 1944  came during the war years for Tacoma families along with the rest of the world. Even though the invasion of Europe by the Allies was under way and the island hopping in the Pacific was showing some success for the U.S. Navy, Americans were both thankful and hesitant. Very hard times were still ahead and Americans were experienced enough, after three long years of war, to know that losses were still to come. At home around the radio families listened to the news from the fronts, but they also welcomed the daffy humor of America’s favorite comedic pair-Abbott and Costello. This program ran at 8 p.m. on a Thursday night, November 23, 1944 over KMO in Tacoma. Some things that are dated but its still funny.

Happy Thanksgiving

Bud Abbott and Lou Costello
