There was some thought about creating an I Love Lucy radio show to run in conjunction with the television series
as was being done at the time with the CBS hit show Our Miss Brooks. On February 27, 1952, a sample I Love Lucy radio show was produced, but it
never aired. This was a pilot episode, created by editing the soundtrack of the television episode "Breaking the Lease", with added Arnaz narration
(in character as Ricky Ricardo). It included commercials for Philip Morris, which sponsored the television series. While it never aired on radio at
the time in the 1950s (Philip Morris eventually sponsored a radio edition of My Little Margie instead), copies of this radio pilot episode have been
circulating among "old time radio" collectors for years, and this radio pilot episode has aired in more recent decades on numerous local radio stations
that air some "old time radio" programming.
