Your HOLIDAY SOR-BAY:The Jack Benny Program - New Year's Day Show


Here is a "HOLIDAY SOR-BAY"

little spark of madness

that we could use to artificially maintain our Christmas/New Years spirit.




New Year's Day and
The Last Day of Chanukah

Jack reads phony telegrams wishing him a Happy New Year, then chats with the coaches from tomorrow's Rose Bowl game, Red Sanders of UCLA and Duffy Daugherty of Michigan State.
The Sportsmen Quartet sing a football fight song with a verse about Lucky cigarettes.
For the last 12 years on radio, the Benny show has done a sentimental, patriotic piece about the New Year year called The New Tenent; they restage it for the camera as a radio performance. Sitting with the cast is a grumpy man Jack doesn't recognize from rehearsal; he's part of the audience but couldn't find a seat. In the radio sketch, Benny plays the Old Timer, 1955, turning 1956 over to a new young kid.



Stay Tuned
