Drene Time
Two starring acts on one half-hour variety program makes for a crowded evening of entertainment, especially when those two acts are up-and-coming comic Danny Thomas and long-suffering spouses The Bickersons. That was Drene Time, a lively package sponsored over the 1946-47 season by the makers of Drene Shampoo. Don Ameche and Frances Langford began their run as radio's unhappiest married couple in segments of the Chase & Sanborn Program during the war years, and on Drene Time their sketches expanded to a regular fifteen-minute weekly spot. Danny Thomas, meanwhile, established a comic persona as a likable bumbler with a bit of an ego in his own segments. He occasionally interacted with The Bickersons themselves as Blanche's no-account brother Amos -- a nod to Thomas's real given name. The series gave Thomas's career enough of a boost that he earned a show of his own for the following season.
