In the late 1930s, musical variety shows were the staple of radio entertainment. Shows like the Bing Crosby Show and the Jimmy Durante Show provided hours and hours of good ol' fashioned, toe-tapping fun. The Raleigh-Kool Program followed suit. It was a revival of the old Jack Pearl Show, with Tommy Dorsey, and featured vocalists Jack Leonard and Edythe Wright, and the hilarious "Baron Munchhausen skit" by Jack Pearl and Cliff Hall.
