Show Notes Episode 325: Operators Are Standing, Bye Mr. Popeil
This week Host Dave Bledsoe wants to show you his amazing new invention for cleaning up all those pesky full liquor bottles around the house, it’s called the Dave-O-Matic! (And it is just Dave drinking all your booze.) On the show this week, we look back on the life and legacy of America’s Pitchman, Ron Popeil! (We should have called sooner, as our supplies of Ron Popeil have run out.)
Along the way we learn about the Ronco Products Dave STILL owns, and hear him angrily deny he paints his bald spot. (NO BALD SPOT!) Then learn about the life of the master marketer and his amazing rise to wealth and advertising fame. Then once we’ve taken care of all those pesky “facts” we get into some of the products that made Ron a VERY rich man! (Do we talk about Mr. Microphone? You know we will come back to pick up you later hot stuff!)
Our Sponsor this week is the Junk-O-Matic by DaveCo, even WE don’t know what it does. We open the show with the Bat-O-Matic from BatCo and close with MetalAl singing a paean to Mr. Popeil.
