These shows are amazing. Benny was decades ahead of his time. It's no wonder so many comedians name him as their primary influence. If you're expecting a Currier and Ives tableau just because this is "nostalgia" radio, forget it. Watch Frosty the Snowman. American stand up begins here. These episodes are hung on the holiday theme, and are a good place to start. But you can download all of Jack Benny's radio shows, and a lot of his TV shows, for free on the Internet. Fitting for a genius who belongs to the ages.

Mickey is startled to find a statue of Rose in a museum; a statue that is 2,000 years old. The Doctor realises that this means the TARDIS will shortly take them to Ancient Rome, but when it does, he and Rose soon have more on their minds than sculpture.

I had a great time listening to this. The story was good enough but having David Tennant read it makes it special. You won't be sorry if you download this.
