Gary Owens and me wishing you a Merry Christmas!

Just like the famous WKRP in Cincinnati turkey drop, the famous Gary Owens Christmas ad is part of the true traditions of radio. Merry Christmas to all -- and wish me luck as I prepare the top 10 of 2020 (need I say it's been quite a year?)!

  1. Gosharooties, Alan, that Gary Owens Preparation H commercial is absolutely insegrevious. In 1981, Gary replayed it on his final day at KMPC. He said it always got more requests than anything else he had ever done. It also appeared on the 1984 album "Dick Clark Presents Radio's Uncensored Bloopers" (Atlantic 80188-1).

    1. Indeed, and as you'll recall Gary pointed out "if you don't like Preparation H, you know what you can do with it."

  2. Yes, Gary said, "If you don't like Preparation H, you know what you can do with it. And if you DO like Preparation H, you know what you can do with it." On his final day at KMPC, he said, "I'm wearing three hats today. I'm not doing three jobs – I'm just wearing three hats."
