Anyone who enjoyed the Road pictures or old radio programs will love this CD. The recording was made at Christmas 1945 and I honestly think that not all the energy and banter is scripted, it was after all the first Christmas of peace in a long time. Listen to the great banter between Bob, Bing, Frank & Judy with songs from the likes of Jimmy Durante and Cass Daley. This is a very funny CD that will have you laughing, not just with a smile, but out loud, and there is always a a need for that.
