Publisher's Summary

This episode of Bob Hope's classic NBC radio show originally aired on June 3, 1941.

Bob Hope made his radio debut on NBC in May 1937. He became a top-rated fixture on Tuesday nights with his theme song, "Thanks for the Memories". His legendary broadcasts from military bases around the world helped boost American morale during the dark days of World War II. Over the years, his radio regulars included Jerry Colonna, Brenda and Cobina, Vera Vague, Wendall Niles, and orchestras led by Skinnay Ennis and Les Brown. Featured singers on the show included Judy Garland, Frances Langford, Doris Day, and Gloria Jean.

Hope's radio career lasted well into the mid-1950s. By then, he had become a major movie and television star. He died on July 29, 2003, at the age of 100.

    "Old time humour"

    The sound quality isn't great, but that is to be expected for an old recording. Many of the jokes were obviously topical and so don't make much sense today. However, the appearance by Bogart and the humour of the play between them was worthwhile as that side of Bogart is rarely heard.

    "General Overview of All"

    Bob Hope was and is one of the best comedians ever. This was the Golden era of entertainment and still provides great laughs.
