February 14th isn’t only Valentine’s Day. It’s also the birthday of radio’s most famous comedian, Jack Benny. The perpetually 39 year old Benny was born February 14, 1894. His landmark radio program was a popular hit for over two decades, and he remains one of the most influential comedians of the twentieth century. In honor of his birthday, we’re celebrating the legendary funnyman with one of his dramatic turns at the microphone. We’ll hear Benny going for drama instead of belly laughs in a mystery from “radio’s outstanding theater of thrills - Suspense.” Benny stars in “Murder in G Flat” (originally aired on CBS on April 5, 1951).
