Hey, the General Program starring Jack Benny with Mary Livingston, Phil Harris, Kenny Baker and yours Truly, Don Wilson. The orchestra opens a program with Go South, Young Man Ah, popular Star Out now called April in My Heart, and that gives me an idea. April, with its fresh springtime colors, is a long way off, but you can get a touch of spring into your main. You tomorrow just served Jell O for dessert for Jell 06 glowing colors or surprise and cheerful for fresh and gay. They perk up any meal, and those six delicious flavors bring you extra rich fruit goodness. Strawberry, raspberry, cherry, orange, lemon and lime. Everyone is crammed with extra fruit richness. Adept the flavor that rivals the fresh, ripe fruits themselves, no matter how you serve it. Dressed up a perfectly plain jello is a grand desert, tempting and good, with extra rich flavor, bright and gay with springtime color. So ask your grocer tomorrow for America's favorite gelatin dessert, Jello South Young man, played by the orchestra. And now, ladies and gentlemen, we turn back the clock and take you to the drug store across the street from the NBC building here in Hollywood. The time is exactly 15 minutes before this broadcast. Take it away. Drugs, dog. You'll have to hurry. Mary. We haven't got much time. I'm hungry. Look, if you'll wait till after the broadcast, I'll take you out and buy you a full course dinner.

Yeah, we're out in a few minutes. Oh, Jack, I just got on a scale that How much do you think away? I'm not Ah, £103. Boy, if I didn't put on any weight you've been watching putting on weight. I've been put on Ah, 100. Ah, £103. And you put on weight? Yeah. Only wait seven. When I was born. You better watch yourself. You know?

It's time for the general program. Come along, Cuddles way. Way played by the orchestra. Now, ladies and gentlemen, if you listen in to Fred Allen's program last Wednesday night, I bring you a man who needs no further introduction. Jack Benny again, this is Jack Benny talking. And don, I gather from that little announcement of yours that Allen was throwing verbal dark. That my bull's eye again, Is that it? Yes, Jackson, you're hearing? No, my radio was on, but unfortunately, I was eating salary at the time. Loud, kind from youthful. Tell me, was Alan as witty as ever, or was he better? Well, Jack, I have to admit, he did get a lot of laughs at your expense. Oh, he did? Well, I won't have to worry about him long. The television will soon be here, and he'll either have to have his face lifted or get in a barrel and broadcast through a bung hole. Wait a minute. Jack Allen may not be handsome, but when you come right down to it, he isn't so bad looking. He isn't don. He's the only Irishman I ever saw that could eat in a Chinese restaurant and be mistaken for a waiter if he wasn't allergic to soap and water. he could open a laundry. Let's drop the subject of Mr Allen. Oh, by the way, Don, I noticed you were limping when you came into the studio just now. Did you have an accident of some kind? Well, uh, Come on, don, tell us. Well, let me see. Oh, yes. I was out riding this morning in my horse. Threw me. Oh, through you Don. There's a possibility that you could have fallen off a horse, but the horse that can throw you doesn't live. Tell me, Fibber McGee. Wilson out of this out of this unfortunate accident happened. Well, Jack, it was like this. I was cantering through the post. Your sure just stop down, folks. I gotta tell you what really happened, Wilson. We were in a drug store just before are now, Jack. Anyway, Don stepped on the weighing machine, and right now it's getting pennies in heaven. Boy, what a rank, Jack, I wish you have said that. Now people will get the idea that I'm really fat don. When you step into your shoes, your rubber heel spread out like pancake batter. I can't understand how a guy can gain so much weight on the salaries I pay. You're not kidding. You know, Don, Every time I look, that woman would have to bring Cuddles to the broadcast. Oh, hello, Phil. Hi. Jackson has a boy, Jackson. Well, every time I meet you lately, you call me Jackson. What's the big idea? Well, that's as close as I could get the jackass and still be polite. Ah, that's very funny. You know, fill your clever enough to have your own program, which you better start looking. No, Jack, I couldn't let you down. You need a guy like me around here? Oh, I dio sure. After all, I'm the only sex appeal on the show. Is that so? Phil? Did you, by any chance, hear me on the Screen Actors Guild program last week in that romantic bit with Joan Crawford? Oh, was that you? I thought it was guy Kibby. You know, Don Well, it was me. I got that smart wire you send me. I didn't send Jenny wire. Not much. Who else would send me a 10 word telegram with seven? Lousy is in it. And another thing feel the next time you send a wire from Pomona, don't sign a George Bernard Shaw. He moved from there. You know, Harris, you remind me of a guy. Our guy. Oh, Madam, Madam. Lost your must. Your dog bark when I'm talking. You don't expect him to laugh to you? Nobody could wipe that sneer off his face. Keeping quiet, please. Let's see. What was I talking about? I don't know. I just came in. Oh, hello, Mary. Mary Jack was just telling us about the program he did with Joan Crawford last week. Were you there? I'll say I waas And boy, was Jack nervous? I wasn't nervous at all. Naturally, I was a little keyed up working with Miss Proper, but I was not nervous. You know, you always sit down on chairs when they're not there. I just did that for a laugh, That's all. Everything went along fine. Del avoids what happen in rehearsal. Jack, What wasn't married? Oh, well, I was just about to finish their big seen A Jack was supposed to kiss Miss Crawford, Jack Joan in his arms and better over back. Many better overload. Uh, now, Mary, what happened? Jack to face. All right. In your face. And you fainted. Mary, That wasn't my to pay at all. That was my Beanie. Well, it had a part in it that only happened in rehearsal, but the routine sounded all right over the air, Believe me. Not according to Fred Allen Wednesday night. Say what is Alan anyway? A barometer or something? He doesn't learn to keep his mouth shut. I'm gonna do something about it. I wouldn't get tough with him, Jack. You know, Allen's pretty athletic guy. Athletic? Sure. I saw a picture of him in a fan magazine the other day and he was posing in tight and boxing gloves. Yeah, but the hair on his chest said Welcome. And speaking of that picture, fellas, did you notice his legs? They looked like two sleepy people. Imagine Alan posing as a fighter. One of these days, I'm gonna have my picture taken being shot out of a cannon and in a leopard skin, I'll show him. All right, champ, Relax. Take it easy. Beat me too. I'll get in the ring with Allen. Any day you laughing, You wouldn't get in the ring with Ferdinand the Bull. I was very cute. Mary, When Phil has his own program, you're gonna be a big help toe that we've got the first show all written. Oh, I see. And what are you gonna call your little comedy act? Merrion? Phil Corn as you like. It certainly got the right title. Say, Where's Kenny? It's time for him to do a song. Here I am, Jay. Oh, where were you, Kenny? I was over in the corner counting my toes, counting your cold. Yeah, I counted. I count and I still get 22 can. Either your arithmetic is bad or Ripley is waiting for you next time. Don't come in here with such a silly routine. A tall Well, I was just trying it out for feels New show. Listen, Kenny, I just said that a while ago when I was mad, Phil isn't gonna have his own show. He is, too. We offered me $8000 in carfare. Very generous in the $8000 a week. Not only that, I get extra money for writing the program. Oh, you're gonna write the show too. Well, that ought to be worth listening to you. Yeah, not only that. Quiet. Go ahead with your song. Wait a minute, Phil. Is it all right If I sing on this program? Sure, kid. But hold back. You get up that microphone, young man, and saying all right. Oh, shut up. I mean, Kenny, I always be a dream Where I was born on I was born to love You'll be creaming off you weigh the evening You only my And I can see you my way More lights on die sink In my chair The small for my cigarette climbs the watch my room way And I'm more Makes a stairway for you to descend You come to my arms May this bliss never end way When I'm vaping agree And from the way my cigarette burns I wake with a start My hand Isn't pain in my heart away every memory way Ah, deep in a dream Sung by Kenny Baker and Kenny That's one of the best song you've sung this year. I know you put so much feeling into it Really? It was thrilling.

You on Grateful Little Brand. How? Wait a minute. You don't aggravate my tenor. I refuse to continue this discussion about your imaginary program. However, if you happen, do happen to get one. I'd only be too glad to let you have Kenny and married. Be sure to take those broken down troubadours with, You know, I'm sending them to Paul Whiteman. Don't send him CEO deal. They'll return with the Swallows anyway. Phylis, Far as I'm concerned, you and Kenny and Mary can all go. Just leave me good old Don Wilson. And I'm satisfied where you should be. You're still getting more than half. Let me ask you something, very. Suppose you did go with Phil. Who's going to give you those good, snappy jobs like that? Last one? Yeah. Don't be cute. Who's gonna write your material? Oh, we've got to swell riders. Oh, yeah? Who are they? No coward. Maxie Rosenbloom. Find combination. Of course. I don't know what I'm getting myself all worked up for. It's also silly. Don't worry, Jack. No matter what happens, I won't leave you. I'll stick with you and Jello from Strawberry. The line had a boy down and I regret that I have but one life to give for my sponsor. John, you're a Rio pill. Maybe that'll teach these traders here something about loyalty. Well, g with Jack, we're not the only ones. I heard you on the program of Joan Crawford last week. Well, that was a special broadcast, Kenny, for one appearance only. So how did you like it?

Did you really kiss her? Well, I certainly I did. Who held her? Don't be so flippant. Crawford enjoyed working. Meet with me very much. He told me so. And as a little memento of the broadcast, I sent her a lovely bottle of perfume where in fact, I sent Rochester over to her house with it this morning. You were on the air whether a week ago. Why did you wait till today to send her perfume? Rochester was making it nothing of the kind. I send Jones some really important stuff. It's called a loon. Gloor Depot. Till a more. What does that mean? Love it twice. I'd also removes stains. You know, Mary, do you speak, friend? You're all wrong. It's exquisite perfume. And I'm sure Miss Probert will like it.
