Radio Daze: Some Jack Benny For Your Old Radio Listening Pleasure!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with another edition of Radio Daze in which I get to share my life long passion for old time radio with you! This edition features one of my favorite comedy shows, the Jack Benny Program. Jack’s program is still consistently funny after all of these years and is a masterclass in comedy writing and timing. Jack Benny was a master of the perfect pause and could get a laugh without saying a word. He was also very generous to his cast, not caring who got the biggest laugh as long as one was to be had. These two Jack Benny programs are from the 1940’s during the heyday of his Lucky Strike sponsorship, which lasted on radio from 1944 to 1955. “LSMFT, Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco.” Jack Benny and Lucky Strike formed one of the most profitable partnerships in old radio history. Enjoy these two classic programs during this cold and stormy weekend! So Sayeth The Kendog!
