Al Pearce
"Nobody home, I hope I hope I hope." That was one of the most popular comic catchphrases on the air as the 1930s turned into the 1940s, and it marked the peak of national success for veteran comedian Al Pearce. His mopey salesman Elmer Blurt earned his creator a well-earned moment in the sun. But Pearce had been around for years before his big national break as a major star of west coast radio, with his own "gang" of co-stars ranging from Bill "Tizzie Lish" Comstock to Arlene "The Human Chatterbox" Harris attracting a strong regional following. Pearce's coast-to-coast shows for Dole pineapple followed the same basic variety pattern, and they still make for pleasant listening today.
