Did You Know?


On this broadcast, Red did not play any of his regular stock characters but instead appeared in several sketches. In one skit, Red demonstrates how different people make a speech, including the president of a hunting lodge to his membership and a political campaign rally. Next, Red displays how cowboys and gangsters die in the movies. The Skylarks perform "I Hate to See That Evening Sun Go Down." In the Skelton Film Scrapbook, Red displays how a couple and their relatives should react to a first baby and how they actually respond to the child. Red and Lucy Knoch exhibit various embarrassing moments, such as a young couple having difficulty parting, a shy guy bringing his first date home, and a sailor trying to sneak a smooch from his girl.
