    I think the unusual format of this particular episode is because the USA had earlier in the week dropped the atom bomb on Hiroshima, bringing the war rapidly to a close. (Not only were there no comedy sketches, there weren’t even any commercials!) The format would return to normal the following week.

    • Wow. Good point. Thanks for the historical reminder about the timing of VJ Day, and the total end to the war. I either didn’t know it, or realize it when I posted this.

      Also, glad to see you’re enjoying browsing the archives. Hope you find lots of good stuff in here.
