Making America greater ,

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nice job with the shows really like the original advertisement👍🇺🇸

Varietyguy1 ,

Al Jolson’s guest appearance was powerful!!!

Bob Hope’s Pepsodent radio show was top notch with supporting players like Jerry Collona, Vera Vague and band leader, Desi Arnaz. The jokes and one liners came fast and furious and the highlight was Al Jolson’s powerful performance promoting “The Jolson Story” (Col, 1946). Jolson proved why he was the rage of 1947. All in all a very entertaining half hour.

Loving the classics

I really enjoy this podcast, especially the My Favorite Husband series. The podcaster is finding episodes of MFH I’ve never been able to find in archives before.

Hope you are on the mend, been thinking about you!
