Hey, we're back. That last few seconds of silence was Marcel Marceau's newest hit single, "Walkin' In The Wind." And now, here are the headlines. Here they come at you right now. Pope actually found to be Jewish. Liberace is Anastasia, and Ethel Merman jams Russian radar. The East Germans, today, claimed that the Berlin Wall was a fraternity prank.

Thank you.

Hauk: Okay, who do we have slated for live entertainment in November?
Phil: Well, we originally wanted Bob Hope, but it turns out he won't come.

Hauk: The Vietnam conflict. We are not going to escalate a whole war just so we can book a big name comedian!

Tuan: Yes. Come. We go.
Adrian: You sound like you leaned English from Tonto. "Come. We go." OK.

Why, son, the shadow of your ass'd weigh 20 pounds.

Mantovani? They play Mantovani to insomniacs who don't respond to strong drugs!

You're a very attractive man, Abersold. Don't think I haven't noticed.

Hey, is it a little too early for being that loud? Hey, too late! It's 0600. What's the O stand for? "Oh my God, it's early!" Speaking of early, how about that Cro-Magnon Marty Drywitz. Thank you Marty for "Silky-smooth sound." Make me sound like Peggy Lee...
