Music from the Abbott and Costello Show

Picture of Marylin Maxwell

The comedy duo of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were huge during the 1940's.  They released a string of VERY successful films and also starred in their own weekly radio show sponsored by Camel Cigarettes.

The Abbott and Costello Show showcased the comedy routines of the duo but also featured some great music.  Some of the bandleaders that led the show's orchestra included Will Osborne, Freddie Rich, Skinnay Ennis, Matty Matlock and Leith Stevens.  Singers that regularly appeared on the show were Amy Arnell, Connie Haines and Marilyn Maxwell.  Most of the music is top shelf.

The show also boasted some great guests including The Andrews Sisters and Frank Sinatra.

Listen for these great musical performances from this classic, long running show right here on Swing City Radio.
