: "Melancholy Baby" - 12/16/45
Oh NO, how could I have forgotten about "Melancholy Baby"? That broadcast was during the "I Can't Stand Jack Benny" contest, and I believe that it was one of "The Radio Singer's" first appearances on Jack's program...if not THE first appearance!
The whole thing was a very silly, and even kind of STUPID routine (the idea of Jack trying to find a certain program on the radio dial and finding that annoying radio singer on just about every other station), but it just always struck me funny!
But we're digressing here...What about the ORIGINAL question that the other poster asked about the song "Pretend"? (See? I didn't forget!)
