The word is out, and the airwaves are buzzing about Eddie’s new timeslot on the radio. Eddie makes himself the butt of his jokes and alludes that his show is low class. He’s bent on having his cast work to put together a good show for the fresh changes to the show. Burt Gordon, the Mad Russian, phones in to harrass Eddie and talk about his childhood. Harry Vonzel helps Eddie go through his mail, and the theme shifts to trying to sell some real estate to Michael Redgrave. The listener is taken elsewhere to see what Michael Redgrave thinks about Eddie as he talks to his valet. will he be as an easy mark as what Eddie hopes?
Comedienne, Billie Burke is enlisted by Eddie to help him out, and Eddie jokes with Michael as he tries to butter him up. The trouble that Eddie has is that he is strapped for cash, and hhe found out his house is losing in value. Though Michael needs a place, through a little mix up, he is rescued from buying a dog of a property, and Eddie ends up with a shorter end of the stick than he thought he would.
In closing, Al Jolson joins Eddie for a few jokes and greetings for Eddie and Ida’s 30th wedding anniversary tomorrow. what would an appearance from Jolson be without a song? He sings, the Anniversary Song.
Note: In the commercial, Harry sings a spoof song that implies that he uses the sponsor product, beer, on his dessert. That reminds me of an uncle of mine who was a heavy drinker. I don’t know if he used beer in his dessert, but he usually drank one with each meal, including putting it on his corn flakes. Ew! But, come to think of it, that was his responce to my using milk on mine.
