The Marx Brothers on Radio

Tuesday 27 December 2005 11:30-12:00 (Radio 4 FM)


In 1932, Groucho and Chico Marx made their radio debuts in a series called Flywheel, Shyster and Flywheel. The scripts, long thought lost, turned up in the late 1980s and were turned by the BBC into a series of half hour recreations. At the time, all recordings of the original series were thought also to have been lost.

Mark Brisenden, who adapted the Flywheel scripts for the successful recreation, has recently acquired one complete episode from the original 1932 show. In this programme he reveals the background to the original series and introduces the first ever broadcast of the only complete show now known to exist.
