"What Fir?"
Gene Autry's Melody Ranch Radio Show
(December 15, 1946)


This "What Fir?" comedy sketch from Gene Autry's Melody Ranch Radio Show uses the same humor formula as Abbott and Costello's wildly popular comedy routine "Who's On First?" made famous in their 1940s radio programs and their 1945 film The Naughty Nineties.

"What Fir?" features Gene Autry, guitarist and comedian Johnny Bond, and announcer Lou Crosby.
