When worlds collide #9

Ivan, I have a OTR question for you.
I just heard that two of my favorite things came packaged together for Xmas one year.
There was a program called Hotpoint Holiday that broadcast a version of "The Man Who Came to Dinner" starring Jack Benny (as well as many others equally famous)on December 25, 1949.
Is there anywhere online where I can listen to it? I really need to hear Benny play Sheridan Whiteside!

I've heard of the program, though I must confess I've never actually heard the show. I've poked around the various OTR mp3 sites and haven't turned up any recordings.

I wish I had the show, because otherwise I'd post it myself. I'll look around some more and see if I can track it down...if I do, I'll give it its own post.

Yay, thanks!
If you can't find it, no one can!

I, personally, will insist on saying "Those raggedy goops were off their trolley!" every single time I appear before Congress. And that is a promise, you lackwitted jackanapes!
