Lucy's Lady Writer

Madelyn Pugh Davis and Bob Carroll Jr. wrote radio scripts for Lucy's radio show "My Favorite Husband" which co-starred Lucy's dear friends Gale Gordon and Bea Benadaret. Madelyn, who now lives in Marion, Indiana; admitted to a habit that she and Bob Carroll had of counting the laughs of the audience during each radio show. The most they ever go was 91. When the watched the first I Love Lucy show they wrote, there was 92 laughs and they knew they were working on something great. They had no idea at the time they would become a part of history.

For more great information on Lucy, Desi and the I Love Lucy show, be sure to pick up Madelyn's book, Laughing with Lucy. It's a great book brimming with information any Lucy lover would treasure.
