The Phil Harris-Alice Faye Show starred real-life married couple Phil Harris and Alice Faye. It was broadcast on NBC from 1948 until 1954. In the program, Harris and Faye portrayed fictionalized versions of themselves as a show-biz couple raising two daughters in a madcap home.

Dennis Day was, perhaps, best known for his role on Jack Benny's radio program. He debuted on Benny's program in 1938 and remained associated with Benny's varios radio and television programs until 1974. He was introduced on benny's program as a naive young singer—a role he played his entire life. In 1946, while still appearing on The Jack Benny Show, he began his own radio program, A Day in the Life of Dennis Day. This ran from 1946 until 1951. The fact that Day appeared on two radio programs became a running gag on Benny's show.
