|During the introductions on EPISODE #528 on August 28, 1960, Joey Bishop announced that the name of Arlene Francis' new radio show on station WOR at 3:15 PM daily is called "Arlene Francis at Sardi's." Net references call the program "Luncheon at Sardi's." As we all know, Sardi's was, and still is, a famous New York City restaurant.|
That's probably how Arlene's radio show got started, and it was a few years before her program became self-titled. As I noted in various notes, Arlene and Dorothy were both on WOR radio before the latter's show was ended in 1963.
