Myron J Bennett
We had some odd filler programs. Myron J Bennett was a big deal in Des Moines radio for many years. Apparently "Talk Digest" went out on Mutual and AFRTS picked it up.
I'd always wondered what the deal was with these until I got out of the army and went to work at a very profitable daytimer (in 1984), near Christmas about 15 minutes of news and up to 27 of commercials. THAT'S what these were designed for. For us in the early 70s they were shipping shows with strange lengths. Charlie Tuna, John Doremus and Gary Owens were 45 minutes and it did need some fillers.
