of America’s most familiar and popular personalities of the 1920s
through the 1970s.

After the death of his wife, Jeanne Olsen, in 1943, he began the
ending of his radio program with the phrase, "Goodnight Mrs.
Calabash, wherever you are," as a tribute to her.

Jimmy Durante created the voice for Frosty the Snowman in the
1969 animated Christmas cartoon, Frosty the Snowman.
