Jack Benny was born on Valentines Day in 1894, which means two things: One – Jack would have celebrated his 123rd 39th birthday and two – it means I must celebrate a day meant for lovers with a ham.
Today I share the love for both the special day and the special man with three old-time radio episodes of the Jack Benny Program. Naturally, all three commemorate both occasions. Enjoy! These are a hoot.
