Ad and Lib

Broadcast Run: 
Broadcast Medium: 

A fifteen-minute daily program, Ad and Lib starred Joe Austin as Ad and Larry Mann as Lib; they portrayed proprietors of a general store, and in each program they delivered homespun – and largely ad-libbed - philosophy about city-versus-country living.


The series played on weekdays, 6:30 – 6:45pm, April – June 1954.
