Ed Asner, Asner, Rudolph discussed on The Story Song Podcast


Ed asner and i don't know why and bad it's bad bad bad. Maybe because ed asner looks like frosty. That's why he's played by ed. Asner sure that isn't there like maybe. It's not frosty.

Rental with john lewis. Okay i what i want to say. The word atlanta's not what. I'm thinking. So i don't want to okay.

He debuted this october. Seventeenth nineteen fifty. Yes and i mean everybody every year says oh my god. They start putting christmas stuff earlier every year. In one thousand nine hundred fifty in nineteen nine hundred fifty was october seventh so but i will say this what he says in this recording not in the recording but in the audio from that show is i know.
