About This Episode
Today we offer a Very Special Thanksgiving Banquet to our beloved subscribers. Like the radio classics of yore, we present a feast for the ears, and our table (at least nine bikes long and four cabs wide) is stuffed with such notable guests as Jack Benny, Bing Crosby, Burns & Allen, and Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve. It’s a parade of stars that doesn’t stop for a moment; it keeps moving right along, just as a parade should. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
