The Magnificent Montague: "The P.T.A. Show"

Originally broadcast: June 2, 1951>

The Jack Benny Program: "Station to Station"

Originally broadcast: January 29, 1950

It's the single word that launched a million laughs, depending on who says it.
Case in point:
Jack Benny, just trying to get from one place to another. And no matter where he's going-be it Anaheim, Azusa, or Kuk...-every time he takes the train he runs into trouble. There's the crazy train announcer, there's the racetrack tout, and the ticket seller that always begins with Jack asking for help. "Oh, mister? Mister?" Only to hear the smarmy, sarcastic reply, "Yeeeaasssssss!"But this time something goes wrong... or right... or whatever.
Then there's The Magnificent Montague-one of the greatest Shakespeare actors of all time. At least, according to him. And when the local school does a scene of Romeo and Juliet for a charity fundraiser, Monty can't step aside. It's inevitable that he will find away to get himself to star as the young lover. But it's his Juliet who steals the show... with a single word.It's a show none will soon forget.

So the question is: Will you come and enjoy these old time radio recreations, live and on stage?
And the answer is: "Yeeeaasssssss!"
