Interesting photo! Do they look like you imagined? He sort resembles the way I pictured him, her not at all. Her voice sounds a great deal like that of an actress I've seen in some sitcom reruns of the 60's, so that's the way I pictured her.

I basically pictured him that way, but I pictured her eyebrows a little different, and I always pictured her hair dirty blonde.

Still listening to this wonderful program. I wish it could go on forever. I'm on episode 498. What a gem of old time radio!

On episode 689, there is an interesting ad at about 10:54. It's actually a blooper!!! It must have been a live ad, or maybe they just thought it was fine the way it was, no one would notice. But I did!!!

He goes "Well. that's for... true..."

I've actually heard the phrase "that's for true" used before, as kind of a colloquial way of saying "that's true"—I think I may have actually used it myself. :) Although here, the hesitation does make it sound possibly unintended.

I have only heard it said by fellow teenagers growing up... I thought it was a late 90s thing!
I think his script said "That's true," except he mashed "That's for sure," in with it. It's kind of a behind the scenes that rarely exists with the recordings we have!

Yes, it sounds like that’s what he did. That makes me think of the old Orson Welles infamous War of the Worlds live broadcast from the ‘30’s. Have you ever listened to that? I remember that one of the actors flubbed up his lines pretty good in some similar fashion. There were all kinds of unedited bloopers like that back in the day when it was live and you had to go with what you got. :)
