A vintage plastic hat — yes, entirely plastic! Even the inside — it’s like a weave of plastic! (The very sight of it made my head itch!) White plastic lily of the valley bells topped by green leaves, it even matches its nifty hatbox! Spotted at The Olde Store in Hales Corners, Wisconsin.

An ad from the December 18, 1950 issue of Broadcasting Telecasting showing how much WHK’s Bill Gordon was loved in Cleveland. According Mel Maurer at The Plain Dealer, “Bill was the original ‘wild and crazy guy,’ a comic innovator who helped to pioneer, if not invent, unscripted radio.”
