Features Kenny Baker, Portland Hoffa, the Martins, Al Goodman’s Orchestra, and Fred Allen in person.
The Martins open with a song, So You’re the One. It’s Thrift Week, and the cast economize on their lines. The News of the Week features contests and awards. Particularly spoofing a recent real life winner who had their life documented by reporters turning their average life into a documentary for public consumption. Hey, even reality TV isn’t new, it only follows reality radio. At any rate, join in as Fred parodies following his Average Man through a day in his life. Listen, and learn how the average man is affecting style and fashion.
Kenny sings, I Hear a Rhapsody. Portland joins Fred to help introduce their guest, after she shares a word about her campaign to reduse noise. A Sandhog, actually the president of the union for men who build tunnels under the river, is interviewed by Fred. In his humorous style, Fred exposes the dangers of the dirty job, and some of the other nuances of it. The Martins sing their version of, La Cucarocha.
Al Goodman spends a few moments joking with Portland and Fred about the cure of his recent illness. Kenny joins the fun, but why does he want to get sick? Fred learns the answer, but only once he finds his place in the script again. After the medical jokes have run their course, Kenny shows off then sings, Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes.
The Texaco Town Players perform a spooff of the film industry, They Almost Junked the Junket. Fred is a busy movie executive who jokes his way through, even getting in a wisecrack or two against his famous rival, Jack Benny. The studio is to make a movie about a horse, but politics and publicity are also a theme.
