The Return of Gary Owens


Gary Owens always made silly radio fun.  Remember his radio announcer test "Can you say six silly words without laughing...and MEAN them?"  Thanks Gary.

  1. I loved Gary Owens radio shows. It was truly theater of the mind. He did one bit that always cracked me up.

    As a takeoff from the big band days and Les Brown and his band of renown" or "Swing and sway with Sammy Kay," Gary would rhyme any name. If the singer's last name was erkle, he might say "that's Steve Erkle and his band of renirkle." I don't know how many people got that rhyming joke but it cracked me up.
