  • Anyone recognize this quote?

    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on July 24th, 2009 (All posts by )

    “Have you ever been phoned in Upton, Mass., for being a lucky wise guy?”

    If so, you win … nothing!

    Ok. You win a cyberspatial imaginary fist-bump.

    (Hint: “Hello, Rangoon!”)

      [ring] “Hello, New York? Sell!”

      [ring] “Hello, Chicago? Sell!”

      [ring] “Hello, LA? Everyone in New York and Chicago is selling. Buy!”

    2. Lexington Green Says:

      Dude, nice try.

      No doubt that actually happens now and then.

    3. Whitehall Says:

      “Were you picking your teeth in Poughkeepsie?”

      No wait, that was the “French Connection”

    4. Shannon Love Says:

      Hamlet, Act II Scene III

    5. Mrs. Davis Says:

      Thanks to Google I can confidently state that even if I had known I wouldn’t have admitted so publicly.

    6. Lexington Green Says:

      Mrs. Davis, you had to be there.

      I thought that sounded familiar, and I guessed right. I gather the station (WBCN, but they will be changing the call letters) is switching to sports talk, which means it loses my car radio button. It’s not such a big loss as it would have been some years ago. Hint to station managers: Kurt Cobain has been dead a long time, and unless you’re running an oldies station, it’s time to find some more recent music.

      Mitch: *fist bump*

      Did you listen to BCN back circa 1980?

    9. Mitch Says:

      Yes, I remember the first time Laquidara got fired on the overnight shift. They told him not to play any more songs with drum solos, so he played Toad, In-a-gadda-da-vida, and a few more, all in a row.
