The Jack Benny Program from December 2, 1951

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 2:19 pm

I usually don’t post “raw” Old-Time Radio shows, but I’m posting this one by the request of someone who has been making me laugh for a really long time as a small payback for all the joy. This is the annual Christmas Shopping show from 1951…each year, Jack would go shopping and merry mixups would occur. In this episode, listen for Sheldon Leonard as the Race Track Tout playing Santa, trying to talk a young boy out of his Christmas wishes and getting severely one-up’ped - and especially listen to Jack still chuckling when he comes back at the end of the bit. That young boy is played by Harry Shearer, he of Spinal Tap, The Simpsons, and the currently-running-on-YouTube-but-some-of-us-saw-it-on-Sky Nixon’s The One.

Oh, and if you want to hear Harry Shearer talk to Bob Edwards about working with Jack Benny and on other Old-Time Radio shows, check out this interview we posted a few years ago.

Patricia “Pat” Hosley

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 11:51 am

From Susan Sigel (through Jack French) comes the sad news that Pat Hosley, radio and television performer and great friend to the Friends of Old Time Radio, passed away last Sunday, July 13, at 90 years. You can see Miss Hosley/Mrs. Kibbe’s obituary at The Examiner News. She performed at the last FOTR convention, starring as Jack in a Let’s Pretend re-creation of Jack and the Beanstalk. My daughter Kate had a minor role in that performance, making her pretty much the last generation who will be able to say they knew these wonderful actors and actresses.

Pat had to be one of the most cheerful people I have ever met. Her huge smile was contagious - when she walked into the room everyone in it would start to beam. And she always had an energy that belied her age…it would be fair to use the adjective “bouncy” when describing her.

With permission, here is a small part of that 2011 FOTR performance; with Arthur Anderson as Bulibus the Giant, Lynn Rogers as the Music Box, my co-host Katie Summers as Margo, Ivan Cury as Teddy, and Miss Pat Hosley starring as Jack.
