    Notes from shows long past.....

    Brannock Device
    Dick struggles with the name of the age-old foot-measurement device invented 80 years ago which is still being made, in essentially the same form as the original – the Brannock Device (Episode 255).

    Who’s this Tom Merritt?
    Appropriately, today's letter comes from Dr Mark Sukoenig from Syracuse, where the Brannock Device was born (see his letter in Episode 280).  Dr Mark asks who’s this guy who presumes to take over the show from Leo.  He doesn’t have a letter to read; he doesn’t do Leo’s great voices; he doesn’t have Leo’s great sense of humour; he doesn’t even shave as Leo does or sit on the ball when he does the show.  His claim to fame is he gets to do shows with pretty women. Joking aside, does Tom merit his chance for filling in for Leo?  Absolutely, and Dr Mark listens to all of Tom’s shows.
