      The Otter log lists Jack Benny's first professional appearance as
      32/05/02 1 First Professional Appearance

      This is incorrect

      Jack Benny's first professional appearnce on Radio was on the Ed
      Sullivan Show in March of 1932 on the CBS network
      after proving he was able to handle radio with the Ed Sullivan show
      he was able to negotiate a deal with the NBC Blue Network and Canada
      Dry Ginger Ale as the sponsor for Jacks musical variety show.

      Premiere (1932-05-02) Is The Canada Dry program with Jack Benny
      first show on the NBC Blue Network, not the first Preofessional
      appearnce.

      I would suggest a change to Premiere and away from first
      professional appaerance. As audio files show up it may lead to
      errant recordings being named the same.
