  • Episode Description
  • Mama is upset because a blender she bought was broken, and Ray Mart would not take it back. She calls KRAY's Chuck Duval, The Shopper's Pal for advice, but after telling her that he can't help her, she goes off on him. Mama creates an uproar, so much so that the manager of KRAY offers her a radio show as a consumer advocate, after letting Duval go. With the family and Iola as crew, Mama finds great success with her show. But soon she wants to add more pizzazz to the show. She adds theatrical effects and begins attacking local businesses. While a hit with the audience, the sponsors are not pleased, and Mama's radio career is soon ended.moreless
