Episode 792Jan 23, 2022Good Questions
Today's podcast reminds you that the magnificent George Carlin said, "Why are they called apartments when they're all stuck together"? Good question. There are lots of good questions. Like "How come wrong numbers are never busy?" "How come an all butter croissant isn't just a big pile of butter?" And "If Barbie is so popular how come we have to buy her friends"?
I did a Mattel tv comercial once, and the producers had absolutely no sense of humor about Barbie. When I asked about buying her friends, it got very quiet, and the temperature in the studio went to absolute zero. Do you think that maybe that's why I never did another Mattel commercial?
Episode 791Jan 16, 2022Getting Older
You've heard people say, "age is just a number." And they're wrong. This podcast says "Age is a lot more than just a number. For one thing it's a good helping of been there done that." I think there are better ways to explain how long you've been around than just telling your age with a number.
One of those ways is to compare when you were born with what else was around when you were born. For example, I was born before television, before penicillin, polio shots, frozen foods, contact lenses, frisbees, and The Pill. There was no radar, no credit cards, no ball point pens, no pantyhose...I was on the air at WNEW in New York late at night and on the log was a live commercial for panty hose...I'd never heard of panty hose, and I almost didn't do the commercial because I thought someone was goofing on me. I was thinking way back then, that we can't talk about panties on the air. I was really worried about it. WNEW was owned by a company called Metromedia. We got a memo from on high that Metromedia was about to install hundreds of low power transmitters and receivers in the NY area, because they were planning on having phones you could carry around in your pocket. I remember thinking...riiigght.
Episode 790Jan 09, 2022My Five Guys
This podcast says, it looks like it's time to admit that I have been four different guys in my lifetime. Dickie, Richard, Dick and Mr. Summer. And I wonder if eventually I'll be a fifth guy. My Dad's name was also "Dick" so when I was very young I was Dickie. When I went to school I became Richard. When I graduated I was just Dick. I became Mr. Summer when I had to deal with the folks at the Dept. of Motor Vehicles when I got a driver's license, and the FAA when I got my pilot's license, but so far I don't think I ever got to be that fifth guy...at least not yet. And hey...it's time. I have come to the age when I choose my cereal for the fiber content, not for the included toy. These days, on those few times I go painting the town red, I have to take a pretty good nap before applying a second coat.
Episode 789Jan 02, 2022Your Funny Fanny Phone
I am not addicted to sex. But I am...a faithful fan of the female form. This podcast admits that I have noticed that lately, ladies are...wearing...rather shape showing jeans. And they're shoving their smart phones into their hip pockets.
Now...you know those voices that grownups are supposed to have that tell you when to Shut Up... do not say what you're thinking.? I don't seem to have one of those. So I recently asked a rather attractive young lady waitress who who was wearing tight, stretchy jeans, with a smart phone stuck in her hip pocket, if she was planning on sending a funny fanny picture to a group of her closest friends. She looked at my Lady Wonder Wench, and they both looked at me and rolled their eyes out loud.
Episode 788Dec 26, 2021A Special New Year's Experience

Episode 787Dec 19, 2021An UnCommon...Common...Christmas
Today's podcast is about a memory I'll never forget. Christmas on Boston Common. Featuring music by around a thousand people and Jose Feliciano, Tom Rush and Jaime Brockket. It was some Silent Night.
Episode 786Dec 12, 2021The Hark Spark
This Christmas podcast ends with the funniest Christmas story I've ever heard...BAR NONE. It was sent a couple of years ago by Bill Everlino. IT IS PRICELESS.
Episode 785Dec 05, 2021The Christmas Mouse
"Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was" supposed to be stirring EXCEPT THIS LITTLE MOUSE. I did him inâ€¦then got a little sad about it. Give a listen pleaseâ€¦and Merry Christmas.
Episode 784Nov 28, 2021A Christmas Warm Up
Some of the stories in this podcast, I've told you before...but as far as I'm concerned, they are worth re-telling as long as Christmas survives. They're real. Like Christmas. And I expect Christmas will be around for a long time. So will Hanukkah, Kwanza, and Solstice and all those other very special feasts that warm and light the beginning of another cold, dark winter.
