February 17, 1946 - This episode of the Lucky Strike Program starring Jack Benny is titled "Rochester Lost at Sea...Briefly" and he really was. The story of Rochester is really an aside. Listen also for a clip from Fred Allen's new movie. And by NEW I mean 1945. Old Time Radio (OTR)

February 16, 1936 & April 19, 1936 - The Jello Program starring Jack Benny. This old Time Radio episode is REALLY old, 80 years ago. Many of the recording from that year have been lost to history. Only about 10 minutes of the episode "Drug Store" has survived. The same is true for the episode "I've Got a Heavy Date" two...
