I'm going to jump right in to this weeks OTR Friday and try and not ramble on and on like I usually do. I don't think my attempts at astute observation help the personal discovery of the humor of Paul Rhymer for anyones enjoyment of "Vic & Sade" all that much,
So jump right in to the best show about nothing (and this is coming froma BIG Seinfeld fan here) EVER produced!
From June 24, 1940, here a story about Mr. Gumpox the trash man's friendly little habit of blowing kisses to the ladies on his route, and how it cause quite the hoopla over at the Donahue's house. Don't think anyone could fill a 15 minute show with only our 3 cast members describing something this simple that happened before the show started and all off mic? Then you haven't been listening!
And from July 1, 1940, after a stimulating game of 500 with Fred & Ruthie Stembottom, Sade reveals to Rush and Vic all of Ruthie's deep, dark secrets. Scandal in a quiet town!
For our visual feature of the week, the December 27, 1943 issue of Time Magazine. A short snippet about the show in which nothing much happens that is ravenously listened to by 7,000,000 listeners and the genius behind it.
