Old TIme Radio At Its Finest

In the late 1940s and early 1950s Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis created some of the most irresistible hilarity in the history of entertainment. Now you can enjoy the Martin and Lewis Show, which aired on NBC Radio from 1949 through 1953. Listen in to the Podcast, and find out what all the fuss was about!

The Adventures of Martin and Lewis - DC Comics

From 1952 through 1957 DC Comics published a comic book series devoted to Dean and Jerry, titled The Adventures of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.

The series ran for 40 issues, until the breakup of the team. From that point on, the series was renamed The Adventures of Jerry Lewis and ran for another 84 issues.

It's very odd to think of these guys as comic book heroes, but it's also a testament to their popularity at the time.

Much of the material in the series could have been drawn directly from the duo's stage act, with Dino portrayed as the suave ladies' man and Jerry the irrepressible nitwit.

Issue #2 of the series included a fairly straightforward 3-page bio of the team.

Once in awhile you might still find these titles on eBay. A quick survey this morning showed several of the 10 cent issues selling for upwards of $30 apiece.

Welcome New Sponsor Budget Car Rentals

It's a real pleasure to welcome Budget Car Rentals as our newest sponsor - and to be able to offer you $30 off weekly rentals and 10% off all other rentals through Budget when you follow this link.

On our trip down to visit with P-Dub last year, we rented from Budget and it was a very pleasant experience from the moment of reservation through when we turned in the keys. Their service is excellent, the van was clean and well-maintained and the price couldn't be beat.

Thanks to Budget for their support of the show!
