On the right is a link to a sampling of June's household hints - beginning with that first call of gratitude for the morning greeting and a few other little establishing bits. The genesis of the hints idea came when June is called upon to help answer a listener's question: "How do the spaghetti stains on kitchen utensils disappear after being placed in the kitchen drawer?" (The audio quality on some tracks is shakey - sorry about that - stick with it - they get better.)
Nothing was ever scripted - all bits were improvised on the spot by all parties involved. It was a lot of fun.
We're still searching around for more of the classic wacky hints and will post them as they turn up. Stay tuned...
