They are the names that defined the Golden Age of Radio: Jack Benny, Burns and Allen, Abbott & Costello, Amos 'n' Andy. Radio's comedy legends bridged the gap between the glory days of the vaudeville and the dawn of the television age. Their classic broadcasts kept America laughing during the War Years and continue to delight audiences--young and old--more that 50 years later.
