Summary

This collection contains five Christmas radio classics from The Jack Benny Program:

  • "Jack Buys Don a Wallet for Christmas" (December 19, 1948)
  • "Christmas Tree Decoration" (December 23, 1951)
  • "Setting Up the Christmas Tree" (December 21, 1952)
  • "Cactus Christmas Tree" (December 20, 1953)
  • "Jack Is Christmas Shopping" (December 5, 1954)

For over 20 years, Jack Benny was a star of radio, from its golden age in the 1930s to the 1950s, when he moved to television. Benny, who began his entertainment career in vaudeville with a comic violin act, developed a radio persona as a well-mannered but often comically frustrated - and miserly - eccentric surrounded by a group of oddball characters. The shows feature many hilarious skits.
