“Ozzie and Harriet’s” David Nelson dies

Filed under: Old-Time Radio, Television — Charlie Summers @ 12:57 am

From Variety: ‘Ozzie and Harriet’s’ David Nelson

The article says, “Nelson was the last surviving member of the Nelsons TV family: actor-bandleader Ozzie; his singing wife, Harriet Hilliard; and his teen-idol younger brother, Rick. The show, which originated on radio in 1952 as ‘Here Come the Nelsons,’ ran for 320 episodes from 1952 to 1966 as ‘The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet’ on ABC. On the radio show, the boys were portrayed by pros, but they persuaded their parents to allow them to play themselves for the smallscreen.”

Is that last true? Were the boys never on the radio program?

    AFTER A SEASON OR SO, BECAUSE THE BOYS WERE OLD ENOUGH (AND THEY BEGGED, IT’S SAID)THEY DID APPEAR AND WERE CREDITED FOR SEASONS ON RADIO BEFORE MOVING TO TV. BY NOW I ASSUME YOU KNOW IT, AND THIS IS CONFIRMATION.
    ON RADIO THEY BROUGHT A FRESHNESS AND BELIEVABILITY TO THE RELATIONSHIPS. RICK WAS ESPECIALLY GOOD AS THE WISEACRE “LITTLE BROTHER.” THANX FOR THE COMMENT SECTION. YOURS TRULY, NO. . .THAT’S ALREADY SPOKEN FOR! THANX!!!!
