Storyline

Jesse White tells Frank Sinatra that Nelson Riddle's orchestra is drowning out his feeble voice, so he has hired a smaller band. The smaller band turns out to be Spike Jones and his City Slickers, who promptly transform the program into a non-stop musical joke. Jesse and Spike put on a Telethon to raise money for Frank, one of the great entertainers of "yesteryear." Frank is at first insulted, but then decides, "A buck is a buck." In the grand finale, Frank sings Spike's hit version of "Chloe", with Spike Jones backing. Written by Ted-5
