Abstract:

During the war years, "Bob Hope's Pepsodent show" was radio's highest rated series. Hope's legendary broadcasts from military bases around the world helped boost American morale during some of our darkest days. However, it was the lightning fast pace of his countless jokes that made the show such a success. Bob Hope's co-star was Jerry Colonna, a madcap musician complete with outlandish mustache. Colonna, or "Professor" as he was known on the show, became famous for his two catch phrases: "Greetings, Gate!" and "Who's Yehudi?" Although the show's humor was based around the current events of the 1930's, 40's and 50's, it is as funny today as it was 60 years ago.
