Starting when I was about 13, I gradually figured out what more and more of the topical references meant. Such as the MANY mentions of "Petrillo" the head of the musician's union. And one time not that long ago, I looked up "Nick Kenny" because a simple reference to him (I believe by Fred Allen) got a huge laugh. But now I've forgotten what I found out. I'll have to look it up again sometime.
" being a history and nostalgia buff, i know what was 'news' during his radio shows and i laugh right along with the audience even though the material is dated on Allen's show!"
