Dear Diary,

“A Date With Judy” had its airing tonight in place of the Bob Hope show. It certainly seems strange to hear Larry Keating read those Pepsodent commercials and then hear Dix Davis, as Randolph, heckle his big sister, Judy, instead of hearing Bob heckle some female guest star—or vice versa. Golly, but I’m going to miss that big lug (excuse the fond nick-name) every Tuesday night for twelve more weeks.

Since Bob wasn’t on tonight I broke a long-standing rule by listening to the program following the Pepsodent show. But it ain’t Red Skelton, it’s Tommy Dorsey.
