1941 WLS Family Album:
Rita and Charlie
Photographed by Fons Ianelli
note: By the time I started listening to the Sunday morning funny-paper
show, Uncle Jack Brinkley had replaced uncle Charlie and the Chicago Times had
become the Sun Times.
Favorites with the youngsters of the WLS audience are Uncle Charlie and Aunt Rita,
who read the Chicago Times' funnies for the kids every Sunday morning. Among recent
guests they have had on their program have been Stan
Laurel and Oliver Hardy of the movies and Abbott and Costello of radio fame.
Uncle Charlie is Charles Eggleston and Aunt Rita is Rita Ascot. Both are heard
on many WLS and network dramatic programs.
