Vic and Sadecast 083 – Fred’s Concrete Partition (11/22/17)

concrete (21:02) The allure of ice cream and salted peanuts is great, but the pull is not stronger than Victor R. Gook.

Examine this episode more closely: 41-07-xx Fred’s Concrete Partition

“Vic and Sade” was written by Paul Rhymer.

Thanks to Internet audio pioneer Frank Edward Nora and ONSUG for hosting the VIC AND SADECAST. I am thankful for him and the many others who help preserve VIC AND SADE for future generations.

  1. Thanks for the commercials! I remember Ed Herlihy from TV, I think mostly from the Kraft Music Hall with Perry Como, and maybe later with John Davidson too. As for the long organ interludes, if these shows were recorded off the network feed, those breaks were probably used for the insertion of local commercials, PSA’s, station ID’s, etc. Fade out the organ, play your local spots, fade back in and the organ is still playing. I have a couple dozen episodes of a show called The Avenger (which is basically a ripoff of The Shadow) with those interminable organ interludes, and to make it worse, the organ theme is basically a ripoff of the Skater’s Waltz, so after a while you feel like you’re at the skating rink instead of listening to a radio show.

  2. Yeah I am beginning to dig these commercials too, because it’s been 6 years since I heard them (yet, I never heard them if ya know what I mean). I’m going to try and use all of the rest of the ones I can. Not all shows survive with commercials.

    I know this Avenger show you talk of. There are a few others that do that as well. I’m not real fond of “organ” music.

  3. By the way, Chief, check out Rhymer’s homage to Herlihy: 41-08-01 Good Ol’ Ned Burlihy

  4. That was pretty cool. Speaking of organ music in OTR, I don’t have a problem with it as long as it’s appropriate for the type of show, but the Lum & Abner organ theme just doesn’t seem like a comedy theme at all. It reminds me more of what, in my childhood, they played on the local station when they gave the obituaries.

  5. It just reminds me of delicious Horlicks.

    really, those commercials are murder to wait through.

  6. I think there are at least two more times yet when Vic pulls the same stunt – changing his tires and the concrete garage floor. In the garage floor episode Vic gives a great excuse… delivering a load of rattlesnakes via high powered motorcycle!

  7. Seems there is also one where he has a “trip to Seattle” planned. There are at least 2 episodes where he says this…
