Series Synopsis: Vic and Sade was an American radio program created and written by Paul Rhymer. It was regularly broadcast on radio from 1932 to 1944, then intermittently until 1946. [[From Wikipedia]] During its 14-year run on radio, Vic and Sade became one of the most popular series of its kind, earning critical and popular success: according to Time, Vic and Sade had 7,000,000 devoted listeners in 1943. For the majority of its span on the air, Vic and Sade was heard in 15-minute episodes without a continuing storyline. The central characters, known as "radio's home folks," were accountant Victor Rodney Gook ([Art Van Harvey], his wife Sade [Bernardine Flynn] and their adopted son Rush [Bill Idelson.]) The three lived on Virginia Avenue in "the small house halfway up in the next block." The program was presented with a low-key ease and naturalness, and Rhymer's humorous dialogue was delivered with a subtleness that made even the most outrageous events seem commonplace and normal. [[[above was Taken from Wikipedia]]] Until 1940, Only the three principal actors were on the show -- no one else. Other characters were only spoken about. In 1940, a fourth character was added, Uncle Fletcher (Clarance Hartzell.) Later, after an illness to Van Harvey and Idelson joining the U.S. Navy, two more characrers were added, Chuck and Dottie Brainfeeble. Their addition was a disaster. They didn't last but a few months. During this same time, a guest character was given to many of Rush's friends; but this too was not something the audience liked and it didn't last too long. Eventually, another boy character was added. David Whitehouse played the character Russell Miller, who was adopted by the Gooks. He was Vic's boss's nephew. By the time the 1945 and 1946 series had come along, all sorts of new characters were on the show. These series suffered for it as they lack the cleverness that the original series had.
