The Wilshire Bowl was a very real place, and boy, what those plugs on Benny's program must have been worth. Lots of big bands played there.
The name lives on at a restaurant at Disneyland.
: Was listening to the 1/7/40 show with Barbara Stanwyck. A lot of the show took place at the Wilshire Bowl where Phil and the Orchestra were performing. Was the Wilshire Bowl a real place or was it something invented for the show?
