In Reply to: Phil's departure from the show posted byAdam on June 08, 2002 at 19:28:47:
If you're referring to Phil's departure in the early 1950s, it was a matter of simple economics. Radio was shrinking, and Phil's fee couldn't be met. Wasn't much more to it than that. It was highly amicable, by all surviving accounts
: Could anyone provide any info regarding the circumstances of Phil Harris' departure from th show? I'm curious to learn if there was a falling out or was it just a moving on, or whatever. Any info, stories or anectdotes will be greatly appreciated.
