Summary

Here is The Pepsodent Radio Show, starring Bob Hope, for Christmas 1953! Filled with comedy, music, and warm Christmas cheer, it's a nostalgic look back at one of America's great entertainers in the process of establishing what became a true American tradition for many many years: The Bob Hope Christmas Specials. Special guest Frank Sinatra is heard in comedy sketches, singing novelty duets with Bob and in a featured performance of "South of the Border" with Les Brown and His Band of Reknown. Here are two of the greatest entertainers in show business, in one great classic old time radio (OTR) program, performing live for the nation's radio listeners on Christmas Eve. The show is preceded by a short introduction from OTR fan and aficianado Bill Mills.

Bob hope

I was disappointed with this as I found it difficult to understand. This was partly due to the bad sound quality. Maybe American listeners would find it easier to understand but the audio was not good. If the sound qualify had been better I am sure I would have enjoyed it.
