    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats me...it's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

Chicago cop writes a ticket for giant sausage

From the Chicago Tribune: Cop writes a ticket for giant sausage

According to the story, this is not the Wienermobile sighted in North Myrtle Beach last month; the license plate of the offending bun pup was WEENR. Good to know we ran into a highway-safe tube steak.

(Ah, c’mon, I got a million hot dog jokes, but even I didn’t use the line from the Chicago Trib story, “the company neither condones nor relishes such actions.”)

Fibber McGee and Molly - Gildersleeve’s Diary

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 2:44 pm

I received a request through the “Contact the Webmaster” button over there on the sidebar earlier this week for episodes of Fibber McGee and Molly; while I usually post more…obscure programs (I know, I probably shouldn’t, but I’ve been collecting so long I sometimes get bored with the same old Suspense and Jack Benny Programs I’ve heard time and time again, so I’m always looking for oddball programs that you, gentle reader, might not have taken the time to hear before), how can I refuse a request?

But there were no specific episodes in the request, so I was in a quandary - which ones to podcast? One of the most amazing things about being me, running the Internet OTR Digest and all, is that while I am not an expert on any particular program, I almost always know experts for any given show. In this case, I contacted Al Girard, he of the Unofficial Fibber McGee and Molly web pages, and asked him which episodes he would recommend. From his list, this is the chronologically earliest having aired October 22, 1940, and featuring Harold Peary as Gildy. Enjoy!

(Don’t worry, we’ll still hear the rest of the It’s Higgins, Sir! episodes, promise.)
