Transcription Mystery Disc #162

This is a 6.5" Wilcox Gay Recordio. It's beat up, scratched and chipped and has a dent so bad the outer third is unplayable by normal means. But from the remaining portion I recovered some audio. It was clear from the label that this was an amateur radio transcription.

It was recorded October 25th, 1949.  The program is clearly a swing program with two male cast members who are named Jack and Bill. The disc runs out because anyone utters a surname, call sign or network. Jack could be Jack Benny, or any number of other more obscure Jacks. Your guess is as good as mine.
