The Merrymacks open with a song, Why. Fred’s News Reel topic is on billboards. Merrymacks sing, Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho.
The band transitions with a tune, Chan of the Jungle. Portland arrives to joke about her mom, flowers, and introduce the guest. Captain Charles Night is an eagle expert. Amid the facts about eagles, the nervous bird flies up to the rafters, and won’t come down. A classic radio moment for sure.
Win Murray sings, When Love Beckoned on 32nd Street.
Station break. The band plays a musical interlude.
The panelists take the stage to answer the question of the week. A man is a newspaper editor from New York, a housewife from New York, and a man from Grape Nut Washington. Amid the adlibs are jokes about Jack Benny, but when an unexplained audience uproar takes place we learn it’s due to the eagle taking flight. With the eagle’s disruption, there isn’t time for the question. The Merrymaks sing, Johnson Rag.
The Mighty Allen Art Players present a spoof of radio’s well known give away show, Pot of Gold. Fred is the frustrated radio exec who deals withthe problem.
