Up to the time that Jack's shows were transcribed on tape (I don't think this occurred until he went to CBS in 1949) his, like all major radio programs, had an East Coast and a West Coast broadcast. The East Coast heard the program Sunday nights at 7; the West Coast heard the broadcast Sundays at 9. There are a few tapes around of both the East and West Coast broadcasts (I have the two broadcasts of Dec. 17, 1939). Typically, the writers would revise a gag or two.
