Watch this FREE video of Ethel and Albert, Peg's half hour television series. THE CORNER OF YOUR EYE was performed and recorded live on October 8, 1954 on CBS-TV
Here is where you hang out to chuckle over, oh let’s see, The Couple Next Door, vintage Ethel and Albert, The Little Things in Life, Peg’s NBC Radio Monitor shows, live performances, recorded interviews, conversations — whatever turns up.
Peg thought it might be nice for you to be able to read an actual “paper” script of hers now and again. “What a good idea, Mama!” I said.
Three months later, by which time I was grabbing anyone who made the mistake of coming through her front door to show them how a scanner works, however ill-suited to the task they appeared, although the Terminex man was in fact not too bad at it — we succeeded in digitizing a little over four thousand of my mother’s radio and television comedy scripts. The ones that aren’t straight or have two first pages are the ones I did.
Scrapbooks and Photos
All scrapbooks, while not completely chronological, have nevertheless been compiled with as much due care and attention as possible by (the extremely patient) Astrid King, using pages from the original albums put together by Peg Lynch herself in the 1950s — many of which were then torn apart with I think we can safely say, less due care and attention, by Peg Lynch herself in 2012, when she decided, for reasons that escape her daughter, that she needed to make nine million copies of everything on the not-very-good-or-big-enough printer in the dining room.
