The Camel Caravan Radio Show

...was a musical variety radio program sponsored by Camel cigarettes. It aired on NBC and CBS from 1933 to 1954. It debuted on CBS on 7 December 1933 as a showcase for Glen Gray and the Casa Loma Orchestra. Deane Janis was the vocalist and Walter O'Keefe supplied the comedy along with Stoopnagle and Budd. This version of the show was broadcasted until 25 June 1936. Five days later the show was reformatted as Benny Goodman's Swing School with vocalists Martha Tilton and Johnny Mercer.

The Marx Brothers visited the show on 1 September 1936. Groucho and Chico were discussing Napoleon - echoes of I'll Say She Is? - while Harpo supplied musical entertainment.
