Just because the internet didn't exist back then, doesn't mean that radio had a few popular phrases that stuck to everyone's mind.

%%PLEASE, REMEMBER: Memes that don't explain where they came from will be deleted. Even if you think it's self explanatory, there are people who will not get it. There is no such thing as a universal meme.

'''Please add entries in the following format:'''
* The name of the radio program.
** The meme. [=[[=]labelnote:Explanation[=]]=]The explanation behind the meme, if necessary.[=[[=]/labelnote[=]]=] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Like this.[[/labelnote]]

* "Hello to JasonIsaacs." [[labelnote:Explanation]]This meme initially comes from MarkKermode's (and Simon Mayo's) habit of... saying hello to Jason Isaacs (a former classmate of Kermode's) on [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00lvdrj their film reviews show]].[[/labelnote]]
** Now this meme hasn't spread a lot on the Internet, but it seems to be appearing in increasingly bizarre situations in real life. See for instance:
*** Someone saying hello to Isaacs in their marriage speech.
*** Someone else, having met Kermode in a hospital, actually saying hello ''on the tannoy''.
*** A [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/56008930@N00/5130109708 sign]] in the [[Series/TheDailyShow rally to restore sanity.]]
*** A writer at the ''Tonight Show with Jay Leno'' is apparently a fan of Kermode's show and has been including the sentence in a [[http://www.the-medium-is-not-enough.com/images/416880_10150553340469029_8509069028_8959444_1254322171_n.jpg few]] [[http://www.the-medium-is-not-enough.com/images/402380_10150553340529029_8509069028_8959446_465789376_n.jpg graphics]]. Said writer sent an e-mail to Kermode and Mayo and can be [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1diKT1djSxI heard]] here (with the images included).
*** Then an engineer working for Google (UK) joined in. So as of February 10th, 2012, when you type "Jason Isaacs" on google.co.uk, [[http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc81/neldhw/tumblr_lz6fm3vO2H1qbmgqfo1_500.png this]] is what comes up.
*** The words "Hello to Jason Isaacs" have been uttered on Swedish radio.
*** Jason's been greeted on [[http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/cc81/neldhw/tumblr_m1ngllIsGk1qkikm1o1_500.jpg Cycling Magazine]].
*** And of course, Jason Isaacs's mentioned this happening to him.
* ''Radio/TheGoonShow'':
** "You've got the dreaded lurgi" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The show created the term as a joke sickness, decades later children and adults alike still use the term to mean any generic sickness that they can't be bothered describing.[[/labelnote]]
** "He's fallen in the wa-ter!"
** "It's all in the mind, you know."
* Radio/FibberMcGeeAndMolly: Not the hall closet! [[labelnote:Explanation]]The program is famously remembered for the hall closet. Sometimes, it's the only thing some fans remember from it.[[/labelnote]]
* Radio/PaulHarvey: Good ''day''!
** And ''now'' you know... the ''REST'' of the story! [[labelnote:Explanation]]TitleDrop at the end of ''Paul Harvey's The Rest of the Story'', a radio show in which the host would share a story of someone or something fascinating, denying one key detail until TheReveal at the end. The phrase is often used in RealLife whenever one shares a long story with someone else.[[/labelnote]]
* [[GodwinsLaw Feminazis.]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Rush Limbaugh's favorite term.[[/labelnote]]
* ''Series/YouBetYourLife'':
-->'''Announcer:''' Ladies and gentlemen, don't tell a soul, but the secret word tonight is 'meme', 'M-E-M-E'".\\
'''[[MarxBrothers Groucho Marx]]:''' Really?!\\
'''Announcer:''' ''[[TitleDrop You Bet Your Life]]''!
** Explanation: This is how the show usually started.
** "And now, here he is: the one, the only, (StudioAudience: GROUCHO!)" ("Is that bum still in town? Oh, that's me!")
* The Creator/AdamAndJoe show on BBC 6 Music gave us "STEPHEN!"
* "Don't touch that dial!" originated on the ''{{Blondie}}'' radio series in the '40s.
