JIMMY DURANTE SHOW
Jimmy Durante was born February 10, 1893, and began his performing career in the Beer Gardens of Coney Island, singing songs and playing accompaniment for another unknown, singing waiter Eddie Cantor. Jimmy Durante came to radio in 1934, starring for Chase and Sanborn as the vacation replacement for his longtime friend Eddie Cantor. "The Schonozzola" next starred as a press agent in NBC's Jumbo Fire Chief Show. Durante returned to radio to star in The Camel Comedy Caravan beginning March 25, 1943. The new series featured the first comedic pairing of Durante and newcomer Gary More and was rushed into production to replace The Abbott and Costello Show when Lou Costello was struck with rheumatic fever. By the time The Abbott and Costello Show returned to the airwaves that November, Durante and Moore had become a successful radio team in their own right and continued for four more seasons for Camel and later Rexall. When Moore struck off on his own in 1947, Durante continued the show on his own, promoted as "Rexall's prescription for a pleasant evening" and opening each show with his famous 'ink-a-dink-a-dink" theme song. The Jimmy Durante Show remained a radio staple until June 30, 1950 and was later revised on television.
