In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Apr 11, 2011

The Jack Benny Show is probably the most-often named Favorite Show of All Time amongst old-time radio fans. 

I chose this episode not because of its content, but because I own the actual script that Jack edited (in pencil) and read from when this particular show was originally broadcast (on October 7, 1945). 

I have posted the first three pages of the script at http://danhughes.net/radio/jackscript.htm, so you can read along as you listen to the program.

See if you don't think the changes Jack made to the script make the show even funnier.

The photo is of my daughter Karen in her JACK JACK JACK (on the front) BENNY BENNY BENNY (on the back) shirt, with Jack Benny impersonator Eddie Carroll.
