Show Notes

The Jack Benny Program: The Jack Benny Program was first broadcast on the Blue Network on 2nd May 1932. With his capable cast of supporting players Benny made his show into one of great radio comedy shows. What was so special about this golden-age classic is Benny's ability to come across as a likeable guy despite being vain, argumentative, and a skinflint. People related to Benny and his willingness to often give the best comedy lines in the show to his supporting cast made him popular with listeners, guests and colleagues. This is classic comedy that is still funny sixty years later.


Halloween Celebration:  It's Halloween, and Jack and the gang wind up at the home of guest Basil Rathbone...in costume! Originally aired November 2nd,1941.
