Jack Benny oh, Rochester! ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Twenty half-hour epoisodes from the Jack Benny radio program that featured Eddie Anderson as Rochester. "In the realm of unforgettable radio voices, there is one that stands head and shoulders above all others -- one distinctive voice that could never be convincingly duplicated, one that brought its owner undreamed of success. It was a voice of sandpaper and gravel and rusty scrap iron, rasping over a nation's loudspeakers for more than thirty years. The one and only: Rochester. As Benny's valet, he was a servant, but he was never servile. From the start, Rochester had his boss sized up and knew exactly how to manipulate him to suit his own purposes. This collection brings you some of Rochester's finest moments with Jack, Mary Livingston, Don Wilson, Phil Harris, Kenny Baker, and Dennis Day"--Container
