Today, I was listening to a syndicated radio show that is heard in my area every Saturday, called "Big Band Jump"...
During one segment of today's show, they featured The Sportsmen Quartet, and talked about their fame mainly from being featured on the Jack Benny radio program..
A couple of their recordings were played, and the host said they usually were known for short songs, so that more commericals or comedy could be fit into a radio
Can someone tell me how long The Sportsmen Quartet was on Jack's radio program, what years that covered, and why they were hired for his show? I know little about them, except for what I heard today and the few Benny radio programs I've heard, which is likely not many, compared to some others in the club.
