We’re going to take it easy for a few days following Christmas, but until then, we’ll keep our noses to the grindstone. And we’re pleased to present you with a few surprises in the coming days. Each day this week, we’ll share with you a Christmas episode of some of our favorite old-time radio programs.
Today, it’s an episode of The Jack Benny Program from December 20, 1936, entitled “An Old-Fashioned Christmas Party.”
We love Jack Benny, and if you’re not familiar with him (so strange to think that anyone might be unfamiliar with Jack Benny, but such is the passage of time), we think you will, too. To our ears, his humor seems less dated than so much humor of the 1930s and ’40s.
Give a listen and see if you don’t agree!
