My wife has a soft spot for Jimmy Durante because he looked a lot like her grandfather who was once in vaudeville.
The Jimmy Durante Show was a revamped version of The Durante Moore Show, which aired (first on NBC Radio, then on CBS Radio) from 1943 to mid 1947, when Moore left to begin a career on television. After a brief hiatus the show returned (this time on NBC Radio) on October 1, 1947 and ran for another three years until Durante, too, left for television career. During its three-year run, The Jimmy Durante Show was constantly rated in the top ten radio programs.
Sponsored by Rexall and featuring Peggy Lee (who was a recurring guest star), this episode from March 3, 1948, features Jimmy taking "Flyng Lessons." Howard Petrie is the announcer.
Listen, laugh, and enjoy.
