I think I made the connection with Jack's program (and OTR in general) through growing up watching the Flintstones. One day I tried listening to a radio show on record (borrowed from the library) and went "Hey, that violin teacher is Barney Rubble!" (Mel Blanc) and later "Hey, that telephone operator is Betty Rubble!" (Bea Benederet). Later, "The Jungle Book" filled in some more connections to the show. I was pretty much hooked to all OTR at that point.
: So the question is: how did you discover and learn to enjoy the humor of Jack Benny? You can read in the FAQ that I came at it through an unusual channel: the cartoon. How about everyone else?
