I make no secret of my love for Jack Benny, whom I consider one of the greatest comic talents of all time. This appeciation also extends to Eddie "Rochester" Anderson. As Rochester, Anderson was the first African-American to have a regular role on a nationwide radio program. In their quiet way, Benny and Anderson -- good friends in real life -- did much to change racial perseptions in America.
When I came across this episode of The Jack Benny Show, I couldn't resist. Sorry, but I don't have a date when this first aired.
Enjoy the magic.
