4x-xx-xx Uncle Fletcher Fails at Telephoning

Phones are not fine.
Uncle Fletcher doesn't seem to like the telephone.  He's had nothing but trouble with them whenever he's encountered one.

In this episode, he's at the Gook house and phones Mis' Keller so he can get a hold of his buddy, Joe Walters, and invite him over to share dinner. But since he doesn't seem to really know how to use the telephone properly, he keeps Mis' Keller hanging while he tells the Gooks a story.  When he finally realizes Mis' Keller is on the phone - and she recognizes his voice - he is astounded.

Uncle Fletcher simply is a failure when it comes to telephones.

The title is one I have provided purely for identification purposes.

[The gist of this episode is revealed in the book, Vic and Sade on the Radio: A Cultural History of Paul Rhymer's Daytime Series]
