Listener comments!

  1:08pm kat330:

Goodbye, Goober. Best peanut in the south.
  1:11pm pantaloons:

IDP: Independent Pants Shakin
  1:12pm Tom:

I wonder if Goober got the idea for his hat from reading Archie comics?
  1:13pm kat330:

I was wondering who moved his nose a tad to the left.
  1:14pm Howie Sterno:

Spit was wearin one long before that Andrews knob
  1:15pm Philo Gristle:

I think Andy accidentally put on Aunt Bea's perfume.
  1:16pm Jedd:

Yee dawgees
  1:19pm kat330:

Floyd is still my all-time Mayberry fave. A very active listener, which is the mark of a superb actor.
  1:22pm amira:

perfect soundtrack for me digging in the garden!!!
  1:23pm Howie Sterno:

OH wait..it was Jughead who wore the 'poor mans crown'...wups
  1:23pm kat330:

Dig it, Amira! Whatcha planting? We have lots of lettuce and herbs and put in all our tomato seedlings last Sunday.
  1:45pm Tom:

Enjoyed watching The Porter Wagoner Show over a UHF TV station from Sacramento back in '73. Dolly Parton was his gorgeous sidekick. That's entertainment!
  1:49pm Jedd:

That's double entertainment
  1:50pm kat330:

@Tom: Saw them locally here on Louisville waves. A pair indeed. :)
  1:54pm Howie Sterno:

aw yeah...usta watch it ever weekend at Granmaws...that an Midwestern Hayride !
  2:03pm Howie Sterno:

a souperior side
  2:16pm Howie Sterno:

So how come Goober never got his own show?...a grave injustice
  2:20pm kat330:

Certainly a better comedian than Jim Nabors.
  2:22pm Howie Sterno:

a better character all round...i guess Hee Haw had him tied up
  2:26pm kat330:

In my search for local Louisville TV of my early childhood, I came across Foster Brooks, "a hayseed character and sidekick to Randy Atcher on T-Bar-V Ranch and Hayloft Hoedown" and Boyd Bennett and His Rockets. Wonder if Rex has ever played "My Boy Flat-top."
  2:27pm Listener Jumpy from Brooklyn:

I just noticed George Lindsey High School here in Williamsburg. What an honor!
  2:28pm Howie Sterno:

a take off on 'My Boy Lollipop' ?
  2:29pm kat330:

I dunno it, but my Dad's radio persona beginning around the same time was Flat-top. "Flat-top's Follies" where he'd wail 'em, wail 'em, wail 'em from Salem, Salem, Salem (Indiana).
  2:31pm Howie Sterno:

How cool ...you got any airchecks ?
  2:32pm Howie Sterno:

an did he say it 3 times or was that an ECHO echo echo
  2:34pm kat330:

I didn't inherit anything from his station, which he started in 1953. As I told station manager Ken, it's a shame because I would have had tons of incredible vinyl to donate. But I remember that "wail 'em" line and his sound effects of a mooing cow, meowing cat, etc.
  2:35pm G:

@Howie: Advertisers discovered as the 60s passed that all the rural-theme shows attarcted older and more downscale viewers who didn't have a lot of disposable income, and anyhow were set in their ways about purchasing and therefore didn't respond that much to TV ad campaigns. Instead, they wanted younger suburban and urban viewers.

CBS had many of these rural/small-town-appealing shows, and an early change made by a young Fred Silverman was to start cancelling those shows in the 1970, replacing them with shows like All in the Family and Maude and The Jeffersons in the early 70s. You can google or wikipedia "Rural Purge" for details (that's what this phase of TV history came to be known as). If rural shows had not diappeared in 1970-72, Goober might have gotten a show. Many rural shows were spun off of existing rural shows in the mid/late 60s.
  2:37pm kat330:

We can always count on G with the straight poop! Thanks, G!
  2:37pm Howie Sterno:

veddy interestink ...always learn somethin here
  2:38pm loopi:

im changing my name to shades
  2:43pm Philo Gristle:

Kat's dad was a real character. Since I moved to the area everybody tells me how he brought Elvis and Rock'n'roll to the area, and his was the only station in southern Indiana/Louisville area that was playing the cool hip sounds!
  2:45pm Philo Gristle:

During his funeral a lot of outrageous stories were told -- e.g. he'd started his station without a license. After being on the air for some weeks/months (I forget) somebody asked him about one and he said: "what license?"
  2:47pm Howie Sterno:

He dont need no stinking license !...i probly heard him in N ky at some point
  2:47pm kat330:

He was a character all right. Now my half-siblings are running the station into the ground. A real shame from its heyday.
  2:49pm kat330:

Baptized in butter -- slick!
  2:51pm Howie Sterno:

That station shoulda been Kat's...no?
  2:53pm kat330:

If I could have moved it away from Salem, perhaps. But it's now a 100% shill for the evangelicals, the only money to be had in rural radio. No thank you.
  2:54pm Philo Gristle:

WSLM postcard: http://www.dejean.com/salem/0000/wslm_72.html
  2:55pm Howie Sterno:

ya cant make 'Hillbilly' a going concern in the sticks anymore?..whats this country coming to
  2:58pm kat330:

Besides there were six heirs. Everyone settled with cash from the youngest half-sibling, who is very comfortable with the evangelicals.
  3:00pm Howie Sterno:

one (or more) in every family...
  3:01pm Philo Gristle:

Another great show Rex! That Esquerita was worth the admission alone.
  3:01pm kat330:

Fine afternoon of tuneage, Rex! Thanks!
  3:02pm Howie Sterno:

Hell , you could have a good gospel station !
  3:04pm Howie Sterno:

Iv'e been excurshed
  5:26am Richard D:

Lovin' Goofin' Too bad that wasn't issued back in 1959. Paul Marvin IS Little Mummy.
