Love that song! You should have a category of iconic phone number songs: this one, Empire Carpets, Lincoln Carpets, CET Television... (Interesting that many of them are carpet or carpet cleaning companies.)

Before this came along you had to have your furniture cleaned in a big cleaning plant?

Seriously, come on.

Great jingle though.

Seems strange now, but I can remember my mom sending the couch and chairs out.

A friend of mine had a portly Little League coach w/ the last name of Hudson and said all the guys used to sing: "Hudson weighs 2-700!"

I love how a lot of commercials from years ago used those basic slides- sometimes it would be an illustration of some sort, or one listing a products attributes and amazing price- or as with Boushelle, a great company logo, address and phone number. Very simple and direct, and those are the commercials that usually stand out in your memory.

Seems like Speed kept getting farmed out to progressively higher stations; 32..44..50..60..66....

Comment posted in WYEN FM 107 - "Request Radio" (Commercial, 1979) by Szake on Friday, January 5th, 2018 at 2:26pm CT

Christopher Michael offers two tales about a common radio mental hiccup - "At WYEN in Des Plaines, Illinois where I was an overnight jock, several of us were talking about Chicago's WCFL, and wouldn't you know, a song ended, I opened the mic and proudly said 'WCFL...' Then I paused for what must have seemed like an eternity while I tried to figure out just what the heck I would do next. I think I said something like "Well, actually, no, this is WYEN. But you knew that." We were known as Request Radio, but one night I was listening to WLS, 'the Big 89,' on my way to work and was really connected to the music and J.J. Jeffries doing the evening show. So I got on the air and with my first selling of the phone number for requests, I gave the phone number for WLS. We were a suburban Chicago station with a fairly low number of listeners - or so I thought. I learned otherwise when people started calling me, saying the guy at the phone number I gave was getting really angry that our listeners were calling him!" Christopher went on to work for Mutual, NBC, was an editor and writer for Paul Harvey - and is now a news anchor at WLS.

Dave Allen and Monty Python - A Great Sunday Night on Channel 11! If you watch this show notice that Allen lost the top of his left forefinger. He tells many different stories about how he lost it.

I'd gotten a DVD compilation of some of his works - apparently an import (must've been that Amazon link 'Polyrasmatazz' mentioned). Fortunately, I have a multi-region DVD player to play it on.

And some commercial stations ran DAaL. In New York City, WPIX Channel 11 ran it for a time in 1975, and then in 1980 it was WOR Channel 9's turn (one of his later seasons).

The details have been duly filled in by the pertinent elves in charge of fleshing out same.
