Jack Benny - December 17, 1944 - Frank Sinatra

Jack hears a commercial for Sympathy Soothing Syrup and heads to the drugstore, where he meets Frank Sinatra.
The Sympathy Syrup routine was a running bit spoofing the then-current commercials for Serutan, which made a big deal of spelling the name backwards. The Sympathy Syrup routines always got a big laugh; Frank Nelson plays the commercial announcer.
