Radio Broadcast Log Of:
The Harold Peary Show
     This series lasted for only one season before departing the airwaves.  One of the problems was too many near connections to The Great Gildersleeve role that Harold Peary left behind when he jumped networks from NBC to CBS.  Some NBC stars were lured away from that network to CBS with lucrative tax deals.  It is thought that Harold Peary moved in that direction by signing on with CBS and assuming that The Great Gildersleeve program would follow.  But the programs sponsor, Kraft, was happy at NBC and refused to move which left Harold Peary without a program until Honest Harold, The Homemaker was developed.  The series was also known as The Harold Peary Show.
