Trivia: Closing sig.

Post by Jerry Dall » Sun, 06 Sep 1992 16:56:49


I have been trying my best to identify the individual who used the closing
signature, "Don't you think? . . . or don't you?", which dates back to New
York City in the '50s or '60s, without any luck.  Can anyone help?  It may
not
even be a radio sig (TV possibly?), in which case, I apologize.

I think this was used in the National Lampoon Radio Hour (early 70's).
It was the sig used by a parody of a gossip columninst, called Mr.
Pompous, or something vaguely like that.  I think Michael O'Donoghue
played the part.

Maybe someone else can provide more detail.
