In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Jan 1, 2013

Jimmy Durante was a gruff, ragged burlesque and vaudeville veteran.

Garry Moore was a young, handsome, crewcut-topped radio emcee.

One night by chance they appeared together on a radio show, and a savvy radio producer was fascinated by their contrasts and convinced them to team up for a radio show.

The result is the Durante-Moore Show, which aired from 1943 to 1947.

This episode was broadcast on December 22,1944.
