The Goldbergs

12:00-12:15 PM


Created by Gertrude Berg, The Goldbergs was radio's first comedy serial to focus on Jewish life. The stories depicted life in the tenement housing of the era, and Berg frequently researched her stories by traveling through ghettos. The show ended in 1950, over 20 years after it first appeared, but the characters continued on Broadway and television, and in a movie titled Molly, after the family's mothers.
