Its no wonder that The Colmans visits to Bennys radio series have become listener classics.This collection includes 16 digitally restored and remastered comedies of manners pitting Jacks failed attempts to play the sophisticate against the Colmans waning patience with their neighbors perpetual violin practice and persistent borrowing.
