You know the music I'm talking about -- the band piece that plays when Don announces the show: "The Jack Benny Program, starring Jack Benny, Mary Livingstone, etc.." I'd always thought of it as "Yankee Doodle Dandy," but it doesn't really follow through after the opening phrase. Where it should be playing "A real live yankee doodle boy," it does something totally different. What do you think? Is it an unusual arrangement of YDD? Is it a totally different song that just sounds like YDD?
