Benny for Mexico

February 20, 1943 Benny for Mexico NEW YORK, Feb, 13— Jack Benny will do one and possibly two broadcasts from Mexico City within the next six weeks. South-of-the- border emanation stems from Benny’s show for servicemen, which will bring him into Mexico early in April. Currently the comedian, in addition to doing his broadcasts for servicemen, is devoting each Mondau and Tuesday to a vaude type of show, using his radio casts as nucleus, at army camps and navy bases. Now in Canada to entertain and broadcast before Canadian and British troops, Benny will play his way back to the Coast and then head for camps in Texas and finally Mexico.
