Welcome back to the final hour of the sandy beach it would -- -- nice to have you with us to stay kinda difficult road conditions out there make sure your headlights are on. And if you're getting kind of streaks on your windshield. Maybe it's time to get yourself. New wiper blades I did that last week yeah. And I kind of usually I do it around the first of December every year I just make note to do it. So when winter comes I've got good wipers and I didn't do it this year and it was kinda upset with myself and I think you know you've got to do this so. I want to restoring and got some new wiper blades put mine. And now it is much better makes a big big difference Rick really -- especially for for this time years that was big deal in the rain but when it's snowing. It really can't make the difference we've been talking about comedy this morning because last Friday. I Love Lucy the Christmas show aired on CBS the show was sixty years old. And even though was sixty years old and originally aired in black and white. And they re colored it which I thought they did an outstanding job. It was still. The number one show last Friday on TV. Think about that. Sixty years have gone by in the entertainment industry we've gone from black and white. Two color TV too high definition TV. Week we've gone from. Never. Really. Thinking about actually. Been in space. And science fiction movies talking about outer space. To actually. -- beam in space. But being able to communicate. When you are in space. We we've gone from. Not even building spaceships to landing on the moon think of all the technology and and things that have happened in our society. Over the last sixty years. And you take a television show from the fifties. And you error in the year 2013. And it's the number one TV show that night. I think. There's very little that can compare to that with everything that is going on in our world today. And you just have to compliment the writers the actors the producer. And and it shows. That good comedy. Is is timeless it is analysts and I Love Lucy was just such good comedy Ricky Ricardo Lucille Ball. Vivian Vance. And mister -- Old William Rawle. When Vivian Vance started in the I Love Lucy show she was only 51 years old and they basically made her look older. And the reason they did that was because they wanted to make Lucy look younger. And makes sense so she did that but here's I think our great trivia affected this to me would be one of the best. Trivia questions that you could ever use at a party so listen up on this one about the I Love Lucy show. Now the shell was filmed in Hollywood but it was supposedly taking place in New York City they were living in New York City. In the show itself and their address. That's a great tribute to their address in the show with 623 east 68 street. I 623. East 68 street. Now what's wrong would that address. Dude dude who. Who dude dude dude dude no. The truth is. East 68 street and ends in Manhattan. At the East River with a number 600. So Lucy and Ricky address of 623 would have been in the East River. At the so the address never really existed. Because. 68. The highest number goes to 600 so there's a little trivia note Korea. And I think that's a great one so was the pregnancy one if you missed it in the last hour. We were talking about the fact that the sensors of the CBS network in the early fifties. When Lucy was pregnant to have -- they would not allow anyone on the show to use the word pregnant. Instead they were only allowed to use the word. Expect him so there's some trivia for you this morning on the sandy beach it would Larry how to let's go to Cheektowaga and say a very pleasant good morning to land thank you for calling plan. Pomona where you don't fall I wish she was I I lost buck a few years ago yeah -- -- back victories sixty elite group which shorter ever watched it. All I've seen the reruns of that -- how words -- -- shocked to see when he was smoking. -- now I don't. Remember seeing you up so people had a cigarette up to -- or possibly just discarded. While I I. Don't remember that I may have just seen it not thought of anything governor or realized it but yet that's kind of interest team. Okay great thanks Vical. I have been watching some of the old Perry Mason shows lately. Which I think aired in the sixties. They're still in black and white. They -- on WB BZ TV here in in buffalo. And it. In almost every episode of that show somebody is lighting up a cigarette and it just kinda reminded me how. So many of the movies. Back in the forties and and fifties. And I suspect some of the western news. They came out in the sixties. It was pretty common. To have somebody a light up a cigarette if you didn't see it as much on TV but I was surprised to see that as much on Perry Mason. And the detective. On the show. Which was not Roger Christian it was over Paul Drake. He seemed always light up a cigarette on the shell. And it was pretty common back -- because. Because. A lot of the shows were sponsored by cigarette companies. -- I mean at one point the FCC. Didn't allow cigarette advertising anymore on television but years ago all. You would see commercials for Winston tastes good like. Cigarette showed it. And Camel Cigarettes and that I'm I'm not a smoker so for forgive me for not knowing all all the cigarettes. Back then can't miss Kent cigarettes. But many of the shows were brought you by a cigarette company and so it was not uncommon to see people sit down and and light up a cigarette. I know I I'm almost positive Lucy was a smoker but I don't think she ever smoked it in the should know. Maybe somebody knows more about that and can -- position 8030930.

According -- -- Larry eight -- -- going to issue we're just telling about the sponsorships of cigarette companies. I -- beyond -- YouTube a couple weeks ago. And I saw the commercials four Winston cigarettes that you restraint before but who actually was the sponsor. -- -- And Fred and -- are actually doing commercials during the shallow who whirlwind stingy all. Dogs. It helped itself because I -- and -- -- smoking. After a hard day at work actually eat the of one of the commercials where Fred actually -- quarry. It comes to that our long day and -- -- in cigarette it's is obviously. All my I -- -- I'm shocked. I I mean really if if I have been on TV quiz show and they. Would inquire about that's like -- on no away all my goodness. It looked at sponsorship of the of the shell and it was just unbelievable that got you into this all budget. I ate a whole series of those commercials but it's such a cool because the fact what you said -- for the proper back in the fifties and sixties. The centers where as opposed to today it will Sheila cigarette commercial. Back then they would actually sponsors who changed television show. Was actual sponsor. -- course the Flintstones were a top ten shall I mean it was so popular. And it was I believe it was like the first of its kind the first primetime -- Animated TV show wasn't -- Okay. And a Fred Wilma Betty and and and who. Wilma Betty. Barney Barney. That was already in and the -- you know. Yeah Barney Ian and Betty -- oh my goodness that's that's amazing final round I appreciate that thanks so much for the call. Yeah. I song. That it was on the Internet. Recently some old TV commercials. And they some of -- work for Chevrolet. Where they had -- and no it was originally it was up Hertz rent -- car I think. And they showed a driver. In -- seeded position floating through the air. Coming down as the car was moving and he ends up seeded in the car driving I think it was a Hertz rental. -- commercial. But if if you go back and can find some of the old TV commercials. Especially for automobiles. The ads sold. -- bombed. The a Corvette. What was said there there was another one -- some of the old Cadillac commercials. I mean it it's five and at least it is for me it's fun to go back. And see the way things were in and the way they were presented NC a man in black and white. And because a lot of that -- creativity just doesn't and affect cars don't they all look like today I mean really. I don't care as a media issue -- Nash you -- count. Cars all local you go to a rental lot. And they say eighty you get the the the Chrysler -- like I don't know what it is. 1130 on the sandy beach show would Larry hunter. Hello guys out there those things -- -- -- -- We had a caller earlier mentioning Andy Griffith show so we felt we. Throw in the theme song there by the way if you're an Andy Griffith fan. There are words to that song and he does sing the song he can probably Google that and find -- if you have an interest of course Barney Fife the well known assistant. Share affair and Ron Howard appeared on the show Ron Howard of course of famous today. As a producer director for motion pictures course Ron Howard also starred. In the motion picture music man. We though Shirley Jones and Robert Preston. 8030930s. Are numbered WBE and -- 930 a -- -- -- yourself Larry hotter in today for sandy beach we're talking about comedy. Lucille Ball in the Chris Michel on Friday night aired on CBS. The show was sixty years old and it was still rated number one. On CBS for that night I think a tremendous accomplishments as a lot about the quality of comedy from that air. And what a great show it really was a welcome mom -- from the show it to the show she is in west Seneca today -- Madeleine. Hi Mary have been here Merry Christmas related and -- -- -- on the radio I really do I love this happened. I'm glad he's phonetic. And that is it as a little girl my parents for -- Kevin added. Everybody it is really feeling like it into television I think it's it's I think everybody would come over -- stick to -- -- -- What he didn't he has many episodes -- smoke and the shall. All the sociology. I don't remember though I think you only get one episode which was supposedly expected. And I thought angrily -- say my -- she's smoking she's expecting I kinda I'm actually can be sure I want one would yell yes she's small that almost all the show. And and the bad thing when they first started out in the apartment. This small apartment but that was -- -- -- separated but that when they moved to this supposedly bigger apartment. If they hit the way that that they pushed together. Yeah I can't remember seeing it is the one -- so they're related -- is what they did the obvious she was elected Hancock. And then let it go in in the bed at night and try to get -- try to independent if he -- cut that and the bad we'll put together. Okay about Mary Matalin we got to stop they're just people are going to wonder. Why Lucy was wearing -- was was that the episode where there was a burglar something's. She landed. If he liked to get back Ricky get killed I don't they were trying out these -- -- get a hold period handcuff the lookout for handcuffed. And he -- to try and repeat of the way it doesn't go to the television show. Don't miss that show -- -- that he had this show I think. He used to -- a set of -- and they couldn't get out of the top. Because entry in today's society you have to understand if you were to talk about somebody using handcuffs it. Right now I don't know solid favorite supposedly supposed to be the trick and they like I I just -- want people seeing later today you know what Larry -- was talking about earlier today. Without it without it cleaned by the -- they indicate almost go to bed with their clothes -- -- television show. Ali good labeled quote and I lead at the end came from Aaron Curry. Kept open up the cup while he was doing the television show lately it was acute and all of them were great even if it was an -- in the -- -- what I remember all of my. And I have to -- that I don't remember that so I am going to search and and try and find that. And you know what was the the most popular Lucy show ever. It repeated the chocolate wanted to -- in need of judgment. Yes it was it was but by whatever you said that -- -- depleted. It's easy for you to say because you're sober. But of course when Lucy did it and I'm go to preferences because we're gonna play it right now because I think it's. Just such good comedy so Matalin thanks for the call that great to hear from you thank you for the nice compliments it as well thank you very. Years ago on the Lucy show. She got involved would do in a TV commercial for the as of vitamin project a project. And it was in a bottle and she was supposed to take a little suede -- of this product.

And it was a combination of things that they put together and they called invite them media badge of men. And there was alcohol. In this product. And -- he kept taking swings of this she got a little bit more inebriated -- And kept slurring her words in this was one of the funniest comedy pieces in television history as far as I'm concerned.

On TV it's even fighter with her facial expressions if there was any woman besides Carol Burnett.
