Jack benny Log Correction suggestion
- 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
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.
