June 2, 1937: The first episode of 'Second Husband' on CBS

 
June 2, 1937: Second Husband, the radio show that lasted until 1946, was broadcast for the first time by CBS on this day.

Second Husband was a radio soap opera aired on NBC Blue every Wednesday at 8:30, replacing the show The Ethel Barrymore Theater. It starred Helen Menken as Brenda Cummings, the story's main character. After her first husband died in a car accident, Brenda married again to Grant Cummings, a wealthy and influential man. Her children had a very difficult time accepting him as their new father.
