Kenny Baker - September 23, 1945

February 1st, 2019

Next up, a program featuring popular vocalist and “Jack Benny” alumnus Kenny Baker.

Originally heard September 23, 1945 on CBS, we hear the Armed Forces Radio Network version where it replaced program 104 of “The Hour of Charm”.

The guest on the show is harmonica virtuoso Lou Adler.  The first song is a medley of “Remember the Night” and “Cheek to Cheek”.  Kenny is backed by Robert Armbruster and His Orchestra and Chorus.  The announcer is Wendell Niles.

The program was digitized from an original 16” vinyl Armed Forces Radio transcription.  The date is from the disc matrix.  I believe this is a previously uncirculated episode of the series.

My thanks go out to blog listener William Harris for his donation of the disc to the collection!
