Note: The show has a low key feel, almost like a rehearsal, but it probably isn’t. There’s plenty of flubs, and ad libs to go around. Though the date is listed as being in 1942, it was more likely from after the war years. The Sam Shovel routines didn’t show up until the late 1940’s, and in 1942, the vocalist would have been Connie Haines.
