Uncle Sycamore is a historical figure who is going to be honored on the radio in a few short minutes. Fibber is excited, and all flustered as he constantly wants a time check from Molly. WBJK, the Happy station, is announced by Frank Nelson, but he doesn’t keep the interruptions coming in with Abigail Uppington. The expected shooting on the western program has Abigail too nervous to stay and listen. Billy Mills plays a jumping dance tune.
Radio troubles with Fibber’s set are resolved, and we hear Frank Nelson deliver a snippet of the story, before being interrupted by a visit from the Old Timer. The old gent is too noisy though, and Molly shuffles him out the door. After a radio survey, Harlowe Wilcox adds to the distractions. He’s accompanied by Claudette Colbert, who uses the sponsor time to pitch war bonds.
The intermittent radio trouble lets more snippets of uncle Sycamore’s story come through, then Teeny pops in. She joins in with the McGee’s to get confused about what an encyclopedia is. Teeny lays out her own confused logic to tell why she came over. The Kingsmen sing a war bond song, At Home in the Good Old USA.
Frank Nelson is back, but not for long when the Spanish lady from down the street arrives. She puts in a word for the Good Neighbor policy. A wartime program that encouraged positive relations between nations in the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Will the radio ever come back on? Will the interruptions never cease? Wallace Wimple pops into speak of admiration for his big old, and often tortuous, wife. Will the real world radio listening audience be treated to hearing the often talked about, but never heard, uncle Sycamore?
