June 15, 1936: Burlesque and the Real Life Couple

  June 15, 1936: The Lux Radio Theater  aired "Burlesque" that starred by Al Jolson and Ruby Keeler. During their time, Ruby Keeler was a tap dancer who then became a known Broadway star, while  Al Jolson  was a highly-celebrated popular singer. The starring of the two in this theater play of  The Lux Radio Theater   was heaven sent not only because of the performance talents of the two but also the fact that off-stage, they were a real couple with an adopted child, though in 1939, Keeler left Jolson. Enjoy the   The Lux Radio Theater  broadcast from "Burlesque" from    June 15, 1936:
