I remember the story went that the car guy was imported from some other city because it worked well there. I'll remember what car dealer he pitched for here as soon as enough brain cells click in.

I'm thinking this was a Kentucky dealer and if I had to guess this minute, I'd say Riverside Ford. Or could it be old enough to be Rockenfield Ford in Ohio?

And who could ever forget good ole Al Schottelkotte?

Al Schottelkotte - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Man...he was a fixture in Cincinnati for a long time!

I remember when WEBN came online in Cincinnati...Jelly Pudding, Tree Frog Beer, etc. Ahhhh...those were the days! There were hardly any commercials in the beginning.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WEBN

Remember when Jerry Springer used to do commentaries on WEBN? Those commentaries usually made a whole lot of sense...Springer was doing pretty well until that hooker deal he got busted for back in the day. Since then, he's just gotten more and more sleazy.

Different car dealer pitch that grew old pretty fast: "Jeff Wyler Chevrolet...cars, like eggs, are cheaper in the country."

Yes, WEBN was the station back in the day. Great music, very few commercials, Jerry Springer's commentaries - it was all great. I remember leaving the very first fireworks display and wondering how anyone could listen to any other station. I still have an 'EBN spring T-shirt.

Probably, it got older more quickly because that clown is a real ******* to deal with.

We went downtown for the first fireworks display and there were almost no crowds. We took my father, who was sick at that time and parked and walked over ans sat on the lawn at One Lytle place.

If you were sharp-eyed and could see the parking area, you knew to be on the lookout if an AMC Pacer (the "fleet" in use as of 1978) with a license plate ending in "KK" rolled up. That meant an undercover inspection team was arriving to see how you were doing your job. Woe betide anybody who scored under 90 on their checklist! (Stock neatly arranged on shelves, cooler filled, "suggestive selling" - LOL - to customer i.e. "You're all set for milk, how 'bout picking up some cookies to go with it?", etc etc.)
Speaking of commercials from back in the day, what car dealer's pitchman wore out the phrase "Nobody but nobody...NOOOOOOOBODY" to describe the business's low prices? Am drawing a total blank on that one.
This is driving me nuts!!!! Who was it????
