2) "Good night Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are."

3) "Say Goodnight Gracie."

4) "Good night, John Boy!"

5) "It's time to say good-night, Dick" "Good-night Dick!"

6) (sung) "Happy Trails to You, Until we meet again..."

7) (sung) ""I'll be back when the day is new, and I'll have more ideas for you. And you'll have things you'll want to talk about. I will too."

and last but not least:

"Good night, Good night,

until we meet again,

Adios, Au revoir, Auf Wiedersehen 'til then.

And though it's always sweet sorrow to part

You'll know you'll always remain in my heart.

Good night, sleep tight

and pleasant dreams to you.

Here's a wish and a prayer

That every dream comes true.

And now 'til we, meet again,

Adios, Dobranoc, Auf Wiedersehen.

Goodnight!!! "

And here's a #9:

9) (sung) "Goodnight, sweet-heart, good-night!"

Dang, everytime I think I'm done - the test keeps getting longer!

9) Guy Lombardo (or the Spaniels - depending upon which version we're talking about)

10) Bob Hope

Best Regards,

Kevin

Could be, but I was thinking a 1970's TV show

Didn't McGarrett say this to Dano at the end of every episode of Hawaii Five-0...

Or maybe it was Milloy to Reed on Adam-12?

Alright... you stumped me!

Sha-Na-Na.

Here's an easier one:

11) "As Always In Parting We Wish You Love, Peace & Soooooouuuul!! "

Soul Train?

It's been fun playing, but in the words of Jimmy Neutron - "Gotta Blast!"

Best Regards,

Kevin

Yikes Ray- you've revealed most of us to be woefully radio-illiterate

All I know on radio is whose signature line this is:

"where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average."

Randy, That's because I'm very old! In my preteen years, radio was the only home entertainment in my house!

I remember sponsors that connected to programs to this day. Blue Coal: "The Shadow"....Jergens Lotion: "Walter Winchell"..... Wheaties: "Jack Armstrong, All American Boy".... Quaker Puffed Wheat (shot from guns): "Terry and the Pirates"....and many more.

More Trivia... Who said "Im a baaaaaaad boy!"

Who said: "It's a joke, son!"

Who was Titus Moody?

Who said: "Write if you get work"?

Who sang: "Ya gotta start off each day wid a song"?

Who launched 4 minutes of audience laugher by saying; "I'm thinking....I'm thinking!!"

What was the job held by The Great Gildersleeve?

Who was Lee Aubrey "Speed" Riggs?

Lou Costello

Who said: "It's a joke, son!"

Francis the talking mule, or Mr. Ed the talking horse ("willbbbbbbbuurrrr"), or Mr. Magoo?

Who launched 4 minutes of audience laugher by saying; "I'm thinking....I'm thinking!!"

The would be Jack Benny- and he was thinking about some outrageous option involving money

Randy, Lou Costello is right!

None of the next one (It's a joke, son) is correct.

Jack Benny was being held up by a robber on the sidewalk who had a gun...he said : "Your money or your life!!"......... Jack replied...."I'm thinking......I'm thinking!! It was a classic!!
