Introduced by Harry Vonzel, that gypsy of the airwaves, Jack Benny tells about the marvelous service he received on his train ride across the country. Has Abe Lyman turned over a new leaf, and intent on being nice to Jack? Bob Ripley of the Believe It or Not show, grills Jack to learn a few tidbits about our funny little star. Abe plays, Hallelujah.
Meet a few members of Abe’s band, then get the word from Harry as he gets the sponsor message wrong. Kate Smith joins the show. She has a letter from Mary to read. Kate sings, This Time Its Real.
Rochester enters to tell about his week in Harlem. Next up is Fred Allen. For payment of his appearance, Fred demands Jacks boy scout knife. The ad libs fly as they talk about their movies. Insults include the length of each others right names.
Note: What are the real names of Jack and Fred? Comment and tell me and the world. Neither use their real names, but they aren’t as long, or cumbersome as they make them out to be.
