    Harry Von Zell, was a radio announcer during the 40's and

    50's, and also was a co star in the George Burns and Gracie

    Allen Show on tv, when I used to see them together. He played their 'straight man' and was always serious. Though

    I think he even managed to get a laugh occasionally. Gracie

    would feed her lines off to him and he would look at her and

    wonder, at times. It was more like a half baked side glance

    when pondering what she'd just said.

    Brace Beemer was the radio Lone Ranger. I didn't know

    his name until several years ago from my husband who has

    a good memory for early radio and tv. And yet, he often for-

    gets what he went to the store to get. And comes home with

    other things.

    And Froggie, bless your memory. I loved that show when

    I was little. I wore Buster Brown shoes, but I don't remember

    for sure what the name of that program was. I am thinking it

    was called, "Let's Pretend". I remember, "Big John and

    Sparky". And I thought John had a frog on the end of his

    piano he'd sit at. I thought that Froggie the Gremlin was on

    his show. Now I wonder what the name of that program was.

    Since they were probably two different shows. Thanks for

    reminding me about Froggy.

    Harry was a radio announcer. (For years I thought it was BONZELL, but I was a kid, what do ya 'spect?) I heard a story about when he introduced President Hoover, he said, "Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States, Hoobert Heever." I don't know if that's true or not.

    Brace...? not sure

    Froggie was on the BUSTER BROWN SHOW! ("Plunk your magic twanger, Froggie!)
