EPISODE DESCRIPTION
Special Guests Are George Burns & Gracie Allen (Aired April 11, 1937)
Mary Livingstone as his wisecracking and not especially deferential female friend (not quite his girlfriend, since Benny would often try to date movie stars like Barbara Stanwyck, and occasionally had stage girlfriends such as "Gladys Zybisco"); rotund announcer Don Wilson (who also served as announcer for Fanny Brice's hit, Baby Snooks); bandleader Phil Harris as a jive-talking, wine-and-women type whose repartee was rather risqué for its time; boy tenor Dennis Day, who was cast as a sheltered, naïve youth who still got the better of his boss as often as not (this character was originated by Kenny Baker, but perfected by Day); and, especially, Eddie Anderson as valet-chauffeur Rochester van Jones who was as popular as Benny himself. THIS EPISODE: April 11, 1937. Red network, KFI, Los Angeles aircheck. Sponsored by: Jell-O. Mary reads a letter from Mama. Kenny Baker sings, "Moonlight and Roses." "Special Guests Are George Burns and Gracie Allen" appear to plug their new show for Grape Nuts which is just starting. Another "Buck Benny Rides Again" episode: "Ready, Willing, and Lame." Jack Benny, Don Wilson, Phil Harris and His Orchestra, Mary Livingstone, Kenny Baker, George Burns, Gracie Allen, Harry Baldwin, Ed Beloin (writer), Bill Morrow (writer). 29:48. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
