WCCR presents Jack Benny, Teddy Wilson

Published 4:45 pm Friday, September 14, 2012

The Western Carolina Classic Radio Club will meet Monday, Sept. 17 at 2 p.m. in Studio 112 (auditorium) at the ICC Polk Campus.
The radio/television presentation will feature Jack Benny in “Ghost Town Western,” a spoof on the old western movies often referred to as “oaters.”
The old time radio show features Burt Lancaster in a suspense play, “The Big Shot,” which first aired Sept. 9, 1948. Lancaster plays a mining engineer who gets a job in an illegal gold mine in Mexico.
Professor Hoyt will keep everyone guessing with his trivia.
Around 3:10 p.m., the summer jazz series will end, featuring the incomparable Teddy Wilson. Wilson’s true talents were often overshadowed by those he played with, including Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald. Wilson is considered one of the most influential jazz pianists of all time.
All are welcome; there is no charge.
