It’s early morning in the Cantor household. Eddie tries to decide what to wear, and has to deal with his daughter. Marilyn wants him to meet her new boyfriend. Will Eddie be getting his little girl married off anytime soon? Listen to Eddie’s marital advice to the young love birds. Topics include the housing shortage, and Eddie going to Washington to complain about it. With a slant to advertise the sponsor, Eddie sings, Atchinson, Topeka, and Santa Fe.
Now in Washington DC, Eddie shakes up the politicians. Sort of. He encounters Burt Gordon, the Mad Russian, and the political jokes flow. Housing, Labor, inflation, and more. The Sportsmen sing, I Believe.
Still not satisfied, Eddie heads to the Senate. As we listen in to the rap session, and it literally is. A session done all in rhyme. Although Eddie repeats the Sportsmen’s song, but with lyrics to address the housing shortage. In fact, the whole cast pitches in their part to the verse. To close, Eddie sings a few bars of, Dark Town Strutters Ball.
PS” Eddie takes a comic look at real topical situations. He really seems to be a caring person who tried in his own way to make changes in popular and political opinion to make changes for the better. After the war, the returning vets needed houses to start new families, and it was a serious problem that found its way into many old radio shows. Eddie also was heavily involved in many charities, and was a leader in helping those in need, and fighting racial problems.
