To celebrate their 15th year on the air, Bill Goodwin flashes back to the Burns home. George and Gracie remember their early start, and the old jokes they used to do. They remember old friends who were there at their start, in particular Al Jolson. Jolson sings, Sitting on Top of the World. As Gracie wonders what ever happened to good old Al Jolson, the Happy Postman visits to deliver a magazine with an article about George and Gracie in it.
Has Jolson’s early influence choked out George’s shot at a big time musical career? More flashback sequences relive George pushing for his chance to sing on the radio. Jolson sings, You Made Me Love You.
Back in the present, Gracie wants to invite Jolson on their radio show, to have George show him up. All it’ll take is to have Gracie lay on the flattery to convince Jolson to appear.
The moment arrives, and Jolson sings a few bars of April Showers. Will George show him up by taking over the duet?
