I was a little kid when I met Paul Dixon (Paul Baby) He always gave me the creeps. When WLWT did their 50 year look back on the years thing, Paul loved the women and would focus in on their legs. God those women were ugly!
Probably the beehive hairdos which were popular back then.
The other reason probably is most of them were from the opposite side of the river.
Paul Baby had a cult following...even with the repetition of things he did such as:
1. Paul shouting "ISN'T THIS THE DUMMEST TELEVISION SHOW YOU EVER SAW IN YOUR LIFE?"
2. "Everybody here gets a great big bag of Lay's Potato chips (audience cheer)
..that's the size you get right there." (holding a smaller school lunch sized bag)
3. Bruce Brownfield and his band apruptly going into a chourus of "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself A letter" when Paul mentions " I just got a fan letter the other day....oh migawd...LETTERS!!!!"
4.Bruce Brownfield's drummer speaking into a microphone in the rear of his drum set in the corner instead of coming forward to a more accessible mike.
5. Paul and crew bowing their head and saluting the station manager whenever "Mr. Murphy" was mentioned.
6. Brownfield's band playing "Hot Time In the Old Town Tonight" (segging from his regular theme song which sounded somewhat similar to Benny Goodman's theme song "Let's Dance" after Paul Baby was introduced by Colleen or Bonnie Lou.
7. Upon entrance Paul says: "This is the most beautiful studio audience we have ever had yet!..." upon which he gets out binoculars to scout out the women's legs...hence his title "Mayor of Kneesville."
8. The references made to expecting mothers as the ones who are "on the nest."
9. Paul introducing Coleen Sharp and Bonnie Lou by raising up their arms in ring announcer fashion announcing the winner..complete with a glimpse of Collen's or Bonnie Lou's raised skirts...both Colleen and Bonnie Lou were comparatively shorter in stature to Paul himself.
Brownfield's band appeared mostly on the Dixon show when the "lush" orcheastra filling in on occasion.
