4-ALOONA (I6wi) AOVANCf THURSDAY, JAN. 13, 1W6 ••••••••••»•••§•••*••••• THOSE RAISED in the days when there was only radio sometimes feel it was much better then than with the new television. In the first place the listener was free to imagine the people as he would like, not as they are. And with radio there was no grating grinding repetition of the same face and grimaces some of the so-called comedians have. Fibber McGee and Molly went wild in radio — but on television they were a flop. They didn't look like the listeners imagined they did. And who can say it adds anything to see a singer while he's singing. Most of them look pretty silly, and close-ups on television of them show wrinkles, lines, and ugly expressions that detract from the music. Many of these singers sound a lot better if you close your eyes and just listen. And by the way, if you do, you'll also hear the accompaniment usually lost in watching the sad sack warbling. V V V PHOOEY TO PHYLLIS Oil- ler. She's suing for the right to maintain what she calls her fictional family characters. Frankly, in the Old Goat's not very humble opinion, she'd be better off without them. The way she mangles her so- called fictional husband 'Fang' isn't funny except for those who think it's hilarious to tear the wings off a fly and let it suffer, or think it's funny to drown kittens. She divorced her husband of some umpteen years and a couple of children, a year or so ago. Success went to her head probably or maybe he got tired of being the butt of her jokes. «g» mji <n» AND WHILE the Old Goat is on a television jag it might be well to consider those new improved new improved and new improved detergents. Aw fer heavens sakes. They can't be THAT much improved over the raves the same junk got a year ago. And who ever heard a woman yelp delightedly over the whiteness of her wash or sniffed to see how sweet it smelled? The whole pitch' of these sales commercials is an insult to a woman. The Old Goat in his years has learned women are plenty durned smart, too smart for the Old Goat most of the time, and the women just won't fall for that kind of guff. HEY NOW! They're putting sex into the man with the after shave commercials and men's (yep, by golly) perfume. Seems if you use the product you drive pretty girls into an uncontrollable urge to run their fingers through your hair. Hah! The Old Goat hasn't enough hair left to make it worth while, not that the Old Goat plans on using any of that junk. Time was when a man was supposed to have an old-leather pipe-smoke aroma of a masculine character. Now maybe he's supposed to smell like a dadblasted petunia. Oh for . the good old days when men were men and women were durned proud of it. OF COURSE more than half of the" people in these United States are less than 25 years old — believe it or not but it's true. And of course they are the ones toward whom all these commercials are aimed. They're the pep si generation if you believe that awful commercial. The moguls running the commercial business are ;a bit leary of the older snake-bit generation who recall the dreadfully happy days of the deep depression. The oldsters don't cotten much to that ma- larky — they've seen too much. It's only the young who are fooled by that junk put out under the sponsor's name with the product rammed into the foreground. OH WELL, so the Old Goat's blood is tired! He isn't going to take any of that stuff to improve it at so much per bottle. And there are some headache remedies the Old Goat will just nev er never buy — the commercials § V Q awful. Mart than IV? million visitor* year see the Liberty Bell.
