Comedy Caravan - April 20, 1945

December 15th, 2018

Our final post this week is a half-hour of comedy with Jimmy Durante and Garry Moore, originally broadcast April 20, 1945 on the CBS network, but heard here in a version heard on the Armed Forces Radio Service as program 95 in the series.

Roy Bargy and His Orchestra kicks off the show with “South American Way”.  Garry tries to make a long distance phone call to the FBI.  Georgia Gibbs sings the new ballad, “I Should Care”.  Durante and Moore play twin brothers in a “hillbilly feud” sketch.

Our show was transferred from an original vinyl 16” Armed Forces Radio transcription.  The date is from the disc matrix.

Again, our thanks to blog listener William Harris for his donation of the disc to the collection!
