Jack Benny - September 25, 1949 - Guest Show

Jack welcomes Edgar Bergen to CBS, and runs into Amos 'n Andy. Dennis Day sings "Some Enchanted Evening".

This episode took place in the thick of the talent raids by CBS against NBC. Bergen's new show for CBS was to premiere the next week. Other stars who made the switch during this period were the cast of "Amos 'n Andy", Red Skelton, Burns & Allen, and Harold Peary.
