YOU BET YOUR LIFE!
(all of the following shows are available from FAIR PICKINGS)

You Bet Your Life!, the comedy quiz series stars Groucho Marx in a program expertly tailored to his talents.  The format varied slightly from one season to the next, but in each show Groucho interviews two or three pairs of contestants (usually ordinary people), injecting his own brand of humor whenever possible.  Afterwards, the contestants are quizzed in the category of their choice, trying to outscore the other couples.  Unfailingly entertaining, the radio show (there was a TV version as well) lasted until 1959.

10/5/49 through 6/28/50 are CBS;
