Keystone Victrola: Jack Benny, Set #1 (5/17/15)

keystone jack

2:00:12 – Starting a new series of Keystone Victrola episodes featuring OTR comedy shows arranged into sets. Keystone Victrola will alternate between The Jack Benny Program, Fibber McGee & Molly, and Lum and Abner (and quite possibly other OTR comedies as time goes on). This episode consists of the earliest Jack Benny episodes known to exist, originally broadcast in 1932 and 1933. These early Benny shows are a bit of a mixed bag, but there are glimpses of greatness and much of historical interest contained therein. Enjoy!
