7/15-DID POLISH NEWSREEL WATCHERS IN 1939 REALIZE THEY WERE WATCHING A PREVIEW OF WHAT GERMANY HAD IN STORE FOR THEM? AND DO AMERICAN NEWS WATCHERS TODAY SEE OUR FUTURE PLAYING OUT ON THE STREETS OF GREECE?
Once a broadcaster named Henry Morgan came to the studio for his show carrying a portable radio. His aides asked him what it was for and he replied, “I really don’t have anything to say tonight so I thought instead we’d all listen to Lowell Thomas!” Barry insists he’s not going that far; his radio colleague LOWELL PONTE will be live with Barry on the show; but Barry admits it’s close enough for a laugh. “I just love the way Lowell does his work. I love the way he says things.” So Barry lets Lowell talk on and on and on whereas other talk hosts would snarl and complain “Ponte doesn’t let me get a word in edgewise.” Lowell’s target tonight – Greece!
