Personal Quote:

During the days when we had to turn out a radio show in a week, I used to get up the following morning after a show, make coffee in my pajamas (I couldn't afford a coffee pot. Remember that one?) and sit around the house that way all week.


In 1936, Wilkie was credited with selling Milton Berle the first joke the comic ever paid for and immediately made a copy of the $25 check.
