Dimwitted, skirt-chasing lefty guitarist played by Elliott "Mr. Radio" Lewis in the NBC radio comedy The Phil Harris-Alice Faye Show (1948–1954). While the stars of the show played lightly fictionalized versions of themselves, Remley was a different case. He had the same name as a real guitarist appearing on The Jack Benny Program, but was voiced by a different actor. Then, in 1949, Benny jumped ship to CBS, taking the rights to the Remley name. So they just renamed the character after his voice actor.
