On episode 203 of Ron’s Amazing Stories we had a story from NBC Theater that stared Bob Hope called The Ghost Breakers. The feedback I had was pretty good so on this program we are going to have one from Jack Benny. Jack’s story appeared on the series Suspense, but it’s not a gripping tale or a scary horror drama.  It’s not a comedy or a drama, but it is sort of a parody. So, I had to create a whole new genre.  I guess you would call it an Scfi-O-Drama-edy. It is called Plan-X and first aired on Suspense on February 2, 1953. 

What is does have is Jack Benny and he was the king of comedy. Benny was born Benjamin Kubelsky February 14, 1894. He an American comedian, vaudevillian, radio, television, and film actor and, of course, violinist. He was truly a legend and is recognized as one of the leading American entertainers of the 20th century.
