|Plot||:||+ We The People. January 26, 1947. Sponsored by: Gulf Oil (part of one commercial has been deleted). 10:30 P.M. An interview with a housewife from Worcester, Massachusetts, who was named Time magazine's "Woman Of The Year" because of her confrontation with a bus driver. Hank Greenberg, who has been sold by the Tigers to Pittsburgh, wants to "set the record straight." Ella Logan and Albert Sharp tell how they came to America to appear in "Finian's Rainbow" and sing a duet. Daisy Smith (of Montgomery, Alababama), an elderly blind lady, tells how she became "an official story teller." From Hollywood, Jack Benny and Mary Livingstone tell jokes on their twentieth anniversary. A woman in an iron lung in Minneapolis makes an emotional appeal for the March Of Dimes. 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.|
