The Couple Next Door was a comedy radio series which aired from 1953 to 57 on Chicago's WGN, moving to the Mutual Broadcasting System in the summer of 1957. Episodes were 15 minutes in length. The married couple was played by Olan Soule and Elinor Harriot. It was revived on CBS Radio (December 30, 1957-November 25, 1960) with Peg Lynch and Alan Bunce as the married couple. Essentially, The Couple Next Door was a reprise of the radio show Ethel and Albert, both were created by Peg Lynch. But the new name was necessitated because Lynch had long since lost the rights to the original title.
