An immigrant has become a mailman on Radio Row. One of his first duties is to deliver letters to Bunny Poe, Vera Van, Ramon & Rosalie and George Jessel, each of them is doing a specialty, except for Jessel, who's been interupted in his rehearsal by a fellow who wants him to appear on a benefit for starving "Moonlight-song writers". Jessel accepts and tells his mother that he won't be home for dinner, until he is told that the benefit is not in town but in Philadelphia. But the fellow has a pretty secretary... Written by

Unlike the previous installments in the "Rallying 'Round Radio Row" shorts, this one infuses a bit of comedy...a bit. In addition to the usual musical numbers, this one has a routine starring Georgie Jessel (who could sing but was more well-known for comedy). In addition, it was really nice to see a younger Shemp Howard in one of his earliest movie appearance. So is this new style any good? Well, yes...except only one more "Rallying" short was made after this one...and the humor in the next one was simply god-awful! Worth watching but still not exactly approaching 'must-see' status for a rather tiresome series of supposedly impromptu song and dance numbers.
