In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Aug 29, 2011

Dennis Day had TWO radio shows, and Jack Benny had only one.  Dennis often kidded Jack about that on the Jack Benny Program. 

This is the second show Dennis had - A Day in the Life of Dennis Day.  It ran from 1946 to 1951. 

In his own show, Dennis played the same naive young innocent that he played on the Benny show.  He had a girlfriend named Mildred whose parents couldn't stand him, and he had a boss named Mr. Willoughby, played by the great John Brown.

This episode, Second Job, originally aired on October 22, 1947.
