  • Episode Description
  • Jack introduces cameraman Charlie Summers and his new wife; she asks Jack why Charlie has never received a raise. During their "feud", Fred Allen presented a 10-year-old violinist on his radio show, Stuart Canin, who played violin better than Jack. He's now a 38-year-old professor of violin at Oberlin. He plays a selection from La vida breve by Manuel de Falla on a Stradivarius. Don Wilson introduces a man with a rocket pack and radar wants to be a State Farm agent. In the sketch, Jack plays the violin-maker Antonio Stradivari, lavishing great care on each instrument. His brother-in-law says customers only care about his signature on them. His wife whines that he could make a lot more money if he cranked out the violins mass production-style. Benny and Canin duet on "The Bee".moreless
