Greetings from Waukegan for the season finale. Jack keeps butting in on Don’s long winded introduction, and the home town boy tells about meeting his old friends. Phil Harris tells about having to spend the night in jail with the mayor. Mary has been doing her own sight seeing, and reports on land marks that feature Jack. Mary reads a poem O Waukegan, O Waukegan. Phil plays, Rose of Washington Square.
In town for the premier of Jack’s movie, Man About Town, Jack pitches the film. His pal, Bitey Walcott takes the stage for a little jive talking.
Kenny Baker had to leave to return to Hollywood, but Phil and Mary will present a song right after Andy Divine pops in. Phil Harris and Mary Livingstone sing, The Lady’s in Love With You.
Will the crowd be up for a violin solo from Jack? In honor of his first violin teacher, Jack gets ready to play, Glow Worm. First, an interruption from Rochester about Carmichael’s antics. Time for Jack and the gang to run offf to attend his premier.
Note: Kenny had his last appearance on the show last week. He wouldn’t be back, since he left the show for greener pastures. In the Fall, Dennis Day would take over in his place. In about a year, Kenny would become a regular for Fred Allen.
PS: The Glow Worm was a song written in part by Johnny Mercer, and had only been released a few years earlier. Lum and Abner fans will recognize it as the tune that OpieCates has perpetual trouble with on the half hour shows.
