As a kid I loved watching Dennis Day's appearances on The Jack Benny Show.  He had a warmth and a naivity that I found refreshing.  And he could sing.  (Something I have never been able to do without angering any and all cats within hearing range.)

A Day in the Life of Dennis Day aired on the radio Saturday evenings from 1946 to 1951.  Day played a naive (of course) soda jerk who rented from his girlfriend's parents.  He usually managed to get in two songs per show with his clear Irish tenor.  Then on Sundays, the following evenings, Day joined Jack Benny, Rochester, and the gang for Benny's regular show.

The link below will take you to 48 episodes of A Day in the Life of Dennis Day.  Settle down, listen to a couple, and enjoy your Day.  (See, I made a pun there.  I did, I did.  Aren't I clever?)
