This upload contains 252 episodes of the great Old Time Radio comedy, The Life of Riley, starring William Bendix.  The radio show aired from 1944-1951, and also spawned a feature film and two television adaptions, one with Jack Gleason that aired for 26 weeks (1949-1950) and a the second with William Bendix reprising his role for six seasons (1953-1958).

The dates, episode numbers and titles are believed to be correct based on available information, but any corrections are welcome. 






















Disclaimer: By uploading these files, I make no claim to ownership or copyright. These recordings have been acquired from publicly available sources on the Internet, and my goal has been to put together a collection of every available episode where possible. I will add to these collections if I discover new episodes or if any new episodes become available. Additionally, while I tried to put together a collection that contains the best version of each episode that I could, there may be better copies of some recordings available from collectors and dealers, and I encourage you to reach out to them if you are so inclined. We OTR enthusiasts owe a huge debt to those who have worked tirelessly to discover, acquire and preserve these recordings. My role here has been to organize the files I have, verify the dates, episode numbers and titles as best I could from available sources, and correct and rename the files accordingly. My goal is to ensure these excellent artistic expressions of our past are preserved for this and all future generations, and I hope that by uploading all of my files here in a uniform and organized system, they will be easily accessible for all.
