Rodrigo Araya5:06 PM Speaking of Jack’s home state, I remember this story about a woman stealing a snow shovel from a neighbor, who then covered her car in snow for revenge…
Laura Leibowitz5:07 PM If Jack and the Colmans didn’t live in Beverly Hills, I could see that being a skit about them.5:08Colmans and Jack happen to be neighbors in Reno, NV as well…5:08Hey Garth…Jack and a snowman!5:09(Just challenging Garth and his database)5:09How about we all kick back and enjoy a show?5:10Can’t remember what I had selected a week or two ago and didn’t need…
5:11OK, if you join while the show is on, go to the link above!

Roger5:47 PM When Verna was objecting to Jack about what is wrong about a Irish song, Jack replies nothing and that his mother always sang Irish songs, I was expecting a joke then about Irish songs and Jack being Jewish.
Laura Leibowitz5:48 PM Roger – I think enough people knew Jack was Jewish, it was like Mr. Kitzel talking about going back to the old country…Ireland.
Roger5:48 PM I could see a chance there for a real funny joke.
Laura Leibowitz5:49 PM Alan Sherman did a wonderful redo of Shake Hands with Your Uncle Mike (Dear Old Donnegal).5:49A Yiddishman Will Steal Your Heart Away5:50Rodrigo – I could see that…”Corned beef and cabbage on rye with mustard)
Roger5:54 PM I assume Jack had the final say on what was sung or what was played by the band on the radio program.
Laura Leibowitz5:54 PM Roger – Hmmm…I suppose. I don’t know of any time that he actually insisted on changes in that.5:55Despite the plot lines to the contrary.
Rodrigo Araya5:55 PM In the early 30s, however, there was a line at the end of several radio shows: “by special permission of the copyright owners”.5:55Like in the first Canada Dry show.
Laura Leibowitz5:55 PM Rodrigo – True, but that was always the case. You have to pay for the rights to perform something.5:56And Kenny Baker appears through the courtesy of Mervyn Le Roy.5:56In fact, Mahlon penned a few ditties that were sometimes used at the opening with goofy names.
Roger5:57 PM It would be like an advertisement for the movie.
Laura Leibowitz5:58 PM I know that when they were going to parody a current film, they’d usually ask for studio permission which they’d grant based on publicity.5:58Garth – Har har
Rodrigo Araya5:58 PM By the time she and Phil had a show, Alice had left the studio.5:58Yet, in every broadcast they said that line.
Laura Leibowitz5:58 PM Roger – Exactly. When Jack did Gaslight on television and didn’t figure he had to ask since it wasn’t a current release, that’s when things got ugly.5:59Well, Jack was still under contract for movies beyond Horn Blows at Midnight.
