In 1964, as a joke, I mentioned on the air that if listeners would send me a letter then I would send them a "Lil Green Thing With a Picture of a Duck on It". After two days I had received over 10,000 requests so I figured I had to do something quick. I bought an entire block of green cloth, cut it up in small pieces and stamped it with a picture of a duck. Just so there would be no confusion I also stamped "Lil Green Thing"on it. One of my former listeners, Jim Wirth, wrote me recently that he still had his among his high school memory books. He sent me this picture of it. Thanks Jim
