On this day in 1942, “Abie’s Irish Rose” was first heard on NBC radio. The radio series was inspired by the Broadway play written by Anne Nichols. A popular comedy and Nichols’ most famous production, it was also later adapted into a movie. The story focuses on a well-to-do New York Jewish family consisting of a widower father and his only son.
