My old time radio extremely rare shows

Jack Carson

The Jack Carson Show. Created by and starring Jack Carson and sidekick Dave Willock. In this hillarious show, Jack plays baffooned version of himself as a dumb-bell movie star. Willock plays Jack’s nephew, who is constantly bringing him down a notch or two.

During the 1930s, as vaudeville went into decline owing to increased competition from radio and the movies, Willock and Carson sought work in Hollywood, initially landing bit roles at RKO. The radio also proved to be a source of employment for the team following a 1938 appearance on the Kraft Music Hall during Bing Crosby's period as program host. This led to a number of other appearances which would culminate in Carson's own radio show in 1943.
