    Episode 1141

    From Kissing to Socks
    Richard Dawson used to kiss every woman who appeared on Family Feud; Peter O’Toole used to wear green socks; Van Johnson used to wear red socks; and Dick just buys them in bulk.

    Leo Urged to use Protection
    Leo said some time ago that he never puts his iPhone in his pocket, for fear that it might be scratched by his keys.  Long-time listener and gadget hound Steve Miller suggests the Invisible Shield (which Dick covered in Episode 233) for Leo.  Leo prefers the naked feeling.

    The Voice of Tony the Tiger

    Another Flick
    Dick and Leo sometimes repeat gadgets, and so, why not letters as well?  Dick re-reads the letter from Phil Flick about Weber grills on Craig’s List, which last appeared in Episode 1135.

    Episode 1137

    Table Read
    The Daily Giz Wiz reminds Robert Sudock, retired assistant chief engineer of KTTV, of table reads in the pre-production of TV and stage plays.  The only difference is, Dick and Leo’s table read is the show itself.  Robert corrects Leo about Paul Frees, who did not do the voice of Tony the Tiger as Leo said in Episode 1120.

    TV Music Museum
    Robert also suggests a site for Dick and Leo: tvmusicmuseum.com for music and tv archives and outtakes.  Check out the Jay Ward section.
