1934 WLS Family Album:
Little Georgie Gobel
note: Most will remember George Gobel (1919-1991) as the star of "The
George Gobel Show" which aired on NBC television from 1954 to 1960, or as
the coiner of such phrases as "If it weren't for electricity, we'd all be
watching television by candlelight" and "Did you ever feel as if the
whole world was a tuxedo and you were a pair of brown shoes?" But WLS is
where he got his start in 1933.
Georgie Gobel is the youngest of the crew here at WLS and one of the best loved.
As you can see by comparing this year's picture with last years, he is starting
to grow up. He is fourteen years old now. If you ever heard him sing "Danny
Boy", you will never forget it. He enjoys singing cowboy ballads so well
during the Barn Dance that Hal (O'Halloran) named him "our little cowboy".
