Audio has outstanding quality. After being introduced, Fred has an important announcement about Jack Benny. News of the Week features New York subways, and the advertising now appearing on them. Sign makers, and commuters express their cultural and poetic views. Kenny Baker sings a song he wrote himself, Daydreaming Overnight.
Al Goodman plays, Ceri Beri Bin. Fred talks a little more about his anticipated Jack Benny day, then Portland enters with a problem with her watch. Fred also mentions daylight savings time where clocks wer set ahead last weekend. Kenny joins the fun with his own slant on daylight savings time. Win Murray sings, There’s Music in My Heart When I Look At You.
With Portlands help, Fred calls the round table to order. A man in the music publishing business is called upon, the wife of a musician joins him, as well as a Brooklyn truck driver. The question deals with the age old question of enhancing one’s appearance. Should a man be satisfied with his normal height, or is it alright to wear lift shoes. Kenny sings, In the Gloaming.
The Texaco Star players present the play, the Baritones Plight, or He Must Have Loved Animals Because He Always Had a Frog in His Throat. It’s the saga of an opera star, and his rise to fame. Listen in and enjoy the behind the scenes struggles of our baritone hero.
Note: In the first commercial Fred asks when Jimmy Wallington thinks we’ll have a completely automatic car. I think the day is here. Check this out, it has only taken 70 years to get here:
