    Maybe we’ll get to see Rochester next week! I’m beginning to see the Jack Benny connection. First with Skeezix’s tape of “Horn Blows at Midnight” and now Frank Nelson.

    The answer is simple: cartoon fun. Skeezix goes to a different place and that wonderful salesman, having been fired from where he had been at, and now is where Skeezix goes to in order to avoid him.

    I bet Skeezix fell alseep watching ‘The Horn Blows at Midnight’ and is dreaming all this merriment.

    About yesterday’s conversation about Manny, Moe, Jack I found this, which I thought existed:
    Spike Jones – My Old Flame

    At the 2:58 mark the Peter Lorre sounding character says, “…Manny, Moe, Jack…”
    Maybe the Pep Boys were listening to Spike Jones before they started their garage?

    Skeezix is sleeping, while the Jack Benny movie is playing. This is all a dream.

    Pep Boys was founded in 1921, That would predate any Spike Jones material as he was only 10 years old in 1921.

    Hmmm…Interesting. So the other way around from what I was thinking maybe…

    I can just hear that famous voice when that character is speaking.

    Not quite. Benson – particularly when the character was on “Soap” – could be downright mean and sarcastic. Rochester could best be described as “independent.” One thing he wasn’t was obsequious. Indeed he was far different from most of the stereotyped servants on radio of the period (Beulah, Birdie on “The Great Gildersleeve” and a variety of others). While he had many of the stereotypical qualities – he played “Central Avenue Dominoes”, participated in long boozy parties , and was not averse to stealing chickens from the Ronald Colemans (Jack’s next door neighbours on the show) he was also a sympathetic character.

    The Jack Benny radio shows can be heard on SiriusXM’s Radio Classics channel.
