Anyone else out there a cornball who loves to listen to old radio shows from the ’40s?
I grew up hearing my folks talk about Fibber McGee‘s closet, Jack Benny‘s squeaky violin, and Baby Snooks’ antics.
Thanks to satellite radio those shows are available again, 60 years later.
And the commercials are a hoot
Either the plugs are non-too-subtly inserted into the script or the cracky, nasally voice of Henry Aldrich belts out a jingle.
Tums for the tummy. And Jell-O, yum, yum, yum!
A Kraft Foods employee emailed the other day. He was so pleased to see this photo of Santa.
Long ago, during our Santa Claus Land days, Santa posed for an advertisement with a variety of products, including Jell-O.
Upon closer inspection, it appears that it was Jell-O pie filling.
Lemon pie filling to be exact.
We sent the Kraft Foods gentleman a copy of the photo to display in his office. Talk about connections!
