WXDU News, Sports, and Information Sunday (2/8) 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Jukebox Graduates is up first at 6:00 tonight. Tune in as middle school students in this Bruce Springsteen fan club explore the music and career of the Boss.

Then at 7:00: It's the debut of Goodnight Gracie, where we revisit the Golden Age of Radio. On tonight’s show, we’ll pay tribute to Jack Benny—one of the greats of old-time radio—who would have celebrated his 39th birthday on February 14 (for the 83rd time). Up first: An episode of Maxwell House Coffee Time with George Burns and Gracie Allen called “How Jack Benny Became Cheap” that aired on March 31, 1949. The episode reveals that George and Gracie are responsible for their friend’s transformation from “Generous Jack” to the penny-pincher we know and love. We continue our tribute to Jack Benny with an episode of his own show on the Jell-O Program. “Jack’s Birthday” aired on the star’s 43rd birthday: February 14, 1937. This episode features Jack’s regular cast—Mary Livingstone, announcer Don Wilson, orchestra leader Phil Harris and singer Kenny Baker—plus a guest appearance of “the Old Maestro,” Ben Bernie, and a “tribute” to Jack’s nemesis, Fred Allen.
