The "Office Boy" Gets Ideas

Bob Harms who takes the part of “Tommy” and writes the script for that nightly KMOX feature program “Tommy Talks” gets his inspiration and ideas from many sources. Bob has lunch with a group of office boys and messengers two or three times a week so that he can absorb their ideas and views and pick up their slang expressions. In this manner Harms is able to give a true picture of the thoughts and actions of the average office boy.
