THE FRED ALLEN SHOW & INFORMATION, PLEASE


This month marks the 124th birthday of radio legend Fred Allen. Though best known for his “feuds” with fellow comedian Jack Benny, Allen had a long and prolific career. We present tonight a classic episode of “The Fred Allen Show.” First, Fred takes us on a walk down Allen’s Alley to meet the colorful characters who live there, then Frank Sinatra drops by songs and laughs. Then, on “Information Please,” Fred starts out as a contestant and ends up as host.
