The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet can be heard each week on the Nazarene Radio Network Sundays at 9:30 PM Eastern; 8:30 PM Central; 7:30 PM Mountain and 6:30 PM Pacific Time.
The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet launched on CBS on October 8, 1944, moving to NBC in October 1948, and making a late-season switch back to CBS in April 1949. The final years of the radio series were on ABC (the former NBC Blue Network) from October 14, 1949 to June 18, 1954. In total 402 radio episodes were produced. In an arrangement that amplified the growing pains of American broadcasting, as radio "grew up" into television, the Nelsons' deal with ABC gave the network the option to move their program to television. The struggling network needed proven talent that was not about to defect to the more established and wealthier networks like CBS or NBC.
We at the Nazarene Radio Network would like to invite you to come back with us to a simpler time... before television lost track of family values... and even before television, when families would gather around the radio and listen together. When comedy wasn’t vulgar, when good always prevailed over evil and when father always knew best.
