Take a look at the photo to answer this week's trivia question:
1. What is the name of Ernie's character?
2. What is his profession? (the full title)
FOR EXTRA CREDIT: Name a couple of his fictitious sponsors and if you're feeling truly adventurous some of the "tunes" that are on the records in the picture.
Once again thanks to all the folks have put in a friend request on the Ernie Kovacs MySpace Fan Page. We've added eleven new friends since last week and are now up to 408.
Here are Kovacsian articles and blog posts of the last week:
A piece about one of the last true local TV show hosts who lists Ernie as an influence
Newsfromme talks about Jim Hawthorne, a famous LA radio and TV guy in the 1950s with a Kovacsian bent
A nice piece from cartoonist Skip Williamson about Help! magazine, a comedy rag from the early 1960s that used to use photos of Ernie for "photo comic strips"
