|Plot||:||+ The Lucky Strike Program Starring Jack Benny. February 23, 1947. Sponsored by: Lucky Strike. The sound transition from the studio to Jack's Maxwell is poorly done with a filter mike. Mary has trouble reading a line, then Rochester blows a line and stops the show (prompting a rare ad-lib by Jack). Don blows a commercial introduction, breaking up the cast. Then Jack mis-reads a line, possibly setting some kind of record! The Sportsmen sing the commercial to the tune of "Humoresque," and the quartet is fired by Jack! The program then runs late and is cut off the air. 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.|
