"The worst part about a radio audience is that it is so cold. ... You get a stony silence that hasn't been equaled since they asked for a rising vote of thanks to Tad Jones at a Harvard Club dinner. ...but it's always the same old story about two Irishmen." -- Robert C. Benchley, from "On the Air" as published in "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea or David Copperfield," 1928. (Originally published in the Detroit Athetic Club News.)
