"It's a long, long time, from May to December. And the days grow short when you reach September. And the Autumn weather turns the leaves to flame...I haven't got time for the waiting game. This podcast is about my least favorite season. I suppose it has some beauty, but my season is Summer. And she's being strangled right now.
More episodes from "Good Night"
15:48You'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.
My Five Guys
14:56This 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.
Your Funny Fanny Phone
17:50I 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.
A Special New Year's Experience
14:14This podcast is designed to help youj sing Auld Lang Syne with someone who may not be around anymore. It usually works. Give it a try. It might help you start off 2022 in a way you wont forget.
16:49Today'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.
The Hark Spark
18:59This 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.
The Christmas Mouse
21:43"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 in…then got a little sad about it. Give a listen please…and Merry Christmas.
A Christmas Warm Up
23:16Some 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.
The Mass Appeal
15:21This podcast reveals most men's man biggest problem...EXCESS HUMILITY. Shameful. This became clear one Thanksgiving recently, and I started the Mass Appeal on NBC radio. MAS = Men Are Saints. Some people disagree. And this podcast corrects their mistakes.
Love Comes Part 2
29:24I've been doing this podcast for lots of years, but I've never done anything like this. This podcast is not autobiographical, but it is an uncomfortably close parallel to something that happened to me, that changed my life. Part one of the story is in the podcast just before this. This is the second, and for me the most amazing story ending I've ever experienced.
