Jan. 6, 1944 – Hedda Hopper writes: "There hasn't been much said about 'Jubilee,' an all-Negro show on a par with 'Mail Call' and 'Command Performance' done weekly for our men overseas. I heard Lena Horne and Rochester singing 'Solid Potato Salad.' Boy, you ain't heard nothing 'til you hear that!"

Note: "Jubilee" is available from several Old Time Radio collectors. I have been dealing with Jerry Haendiges for years and always check his logs first.
