It's been awhile seen we heard from singer, comedian and "Jack Benny Show" cast member Dennis Day on the blog. Here, we offer up another rare example of a comedy variety show featuring Dennis that was broadcast in the mid-1950s, probably on NBC (according to Goldin).
The program was likely heard September 18, 1955 (the date on the AFRTS transcription vinyl trail-off) and was distributed as program 198 in the "Dennis Day" series. Dennis starts off the show with a rendition of "April Showers" and Mel Blanc, a regular guest on the series, performs "The Pussy Cat Parade". Also, guest Anna Maria Alberghetti gives us "The Italian Street Song" and the troop performs a comedy sketch that's a Western done as an opera.
The show was transferred from an original AFRTS vinyl transcription set.
