this is my last post on the topic - I sense no one is interested - Bobby Benson comic book ran for a few years in the early fifties

who is second

It is generally accepted that Jack Benny was the greatest radio comedican but who would be second - many might say Fred Allen but I'm going to suggest a name some might not be familiar with Tony Hancock a british comedian who I think rivals Jack Benny

I have'nt read any of the Shadow stories (I will now) so I can't disagree but your point is well made - the book was better than the radio show and the radio show was much better than any movie version of the show.

Medium is the Message

I was listening to this great show in my car last night ( still didn't make a lot of sense - the ending in particular) but what I was reminded of was how a show from one medium does not usually transfer well to another, I think this is perfect example - it simply would not have had the impact as a m...

mary livingstone

I was just listening to a 1954 show and it sounded to me that the voice of Mary Livingstone was her daughter's - I have read that Mary had difficulty doing the radio show in its latter days - does anyone have specific information about when her daughter (if I am correct) took over the role and Mary ...

comic strip

I don't know about a newspaper comic strip - what I have seen is a comic book - and it seems there was only a single issue (but I could be wrong)

Ozzie and Harriet was also a comic book - 4 or 5 issues - there were many comics that became radio shows (Orphan Annie Lone Ranger etc etc) but I am unable to think of any other radio shows that had comic books - Lum n Abner maybe

still funny

It is sad to see so little activity on the jack benny forum - I listen to his shows while working around the house - particularly in the summer - and he is still (some 70 years later) funny. I enjoy Fibber McGee but for nostalgic reasons not for there very dated humor and of Bob Hope is hopelessly d...
