In an April 1941 program, Rochester reported that the gas man had gone into the basement, "then it sounded like feeding time at the zoo!"
When Jack replied that that was ridiculous, Rochester's reply was, "Maybe so, but I wouldn't look for a bill this month!"
Hence Carmichael's letter to Santa Claus, as reported by Rochester in December. "Dear Santa: Please send a fat boy to read the meter!"
: I've heard a few references from Rochester about the gas man and 'What happened to the gas man'. It must be from an earlier show but I'm curious, what did happen to the gas man?
