Around 1965 Chase & Sanborn sponsored a NBC Radio special, hosted by Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy and featuring excerpts from Bergen's old Chase & Sanborn-sponsored radio programs.
I have this retro special on tape, and one excerpt is particularly funny...It features Jack Benny as a guest, and the show's story has Jack losing his wallet. Charlie and Edgar find it and return it to Jack...but before they do Jack must identify the wallet's contents.
Jack knows every bill denomination that was in the wallet...and even rattles off each bill's serial number! (Plus Jack says that there was a photo of silent-screen star Pola Negri in the cardcase!).
I would LOVE to get my hands on this complete show, but I haven't seen it listed anywhere....
Does anyone have any info on, or access to, this Bergen & McCarthy episode with Jack?
