SUNDAY, June 30th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME with Jeeves

Tea Time strolls lightly into summer and the world of author and humorist P.G. Wodehouse, featuring two of his most memorable characters: Bertie Wooster and his inscrutable valet, Jeeves.

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse KBE was an English author and one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century. Most of Wodehouse's fiction is set in England, although he spent much of his life in the US and used New York and Hollywood as settings for some of his novels and short stories. He wrote a series of Broadway musical comedies during and after the First World War, together with Guy Bolton and Jerome Kern, that played an important part in the development of the American musical. He began the 1930s writing for MGM in Hollywood.

The Jeeves canon is a series of comedic stories following Bertie Wooster and his valet Jeeves, consisting of 35 short stories and 11 novels. With minor exceptions, the short stories were written and published first (between 1915 and 1930); the novels later (between 1934 and 1974). While the series of stories featuring the character of Jeeves are often referred to as the "Jeeves" stories, the series is also called by other names such as the "Jeeves and Wooster" or "Jeeves and Bertie" stories.

The stories for this series are drawn from "My Man Jeeves", a collection of various short stories by Wodehouse first published in the United Kingdom in May 1919. Tea Time will focus on the four stories that feature these popular characters

THIS WEEK: "Leave it to Jeeves."
