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]]
** Further mutations and successor memes, if any.

* "Hello to Creator/JasonIsaacs." [[labelnote:Explanation]]This meme initially comes from Creator/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!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]This was the catchphrase of Little Jim, whose only job in any given script was to say this line when someone [[CaptainObvious fell into the water]].[[/labelnote]]
** "It's all in the mind, you know."[[labelnote:Explanation]]Announcer Wallace Greenslade's charchphrase, usually used to finally put the final nail in the typical [[GainaxEnding last few minutes of a Goon Show episode]].[[/labelnote]]
* ''Radio/FibberMcGeeAndMolly'':
** Not the hall closet! [[labelnote:Explanation]]One of the fondest-remembered gags from this show was the infamous hall closet, which was packed with an absurd amount of stuff, that would invariably come cascading out on Fibber when he had to open it up. Always ended by a small tinkling bell.[[/labelnote]]
** "T'aint funny, [=McGee=]!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Molly's [[LamePunReaction response]] to Fibber's lame jokes.[[/labelnote]]
** "That's pretty good, Johnny. But that ain't the way I hear'd it!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]The catchphrase of the Old-Timer, who always called Fibber "Johnny" and Molly "Daughter".[[/labelnote]]
** The character [[ConstantlyCurious Teeny]] frequently said "I bet'cha" at the end of every other sentence, I bet'cha.
** "Is that you, Myrt? How's every little thing?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Fibber tries to make a call and the operator always seems to be his friend Myrt.[[/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]]Creator/RushLimbaugh's term for persons who engage in what would be StrawFeminist activities... [[PoesLaw if said persons were fictional]].[[/labelnote]]
* ''Series/YouBetYourLife'':
-->'''Announcer:''' Ladies and gentlemen, don't tell a soul, but the secret word tonight is 'meme', 'M-E-M-E'".\\
'''[[Creator/MarxBrothers Groucho Marx]]:''' Really?!\\
'''Announcer:''' ''[[TitleDrop You Bet Your Life]]''![[labelnote:Explanation]] This was how the show usually started.[[/labelnote]]
** "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!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Just coming![[/labelnote]]
* "Don't touch that dial!" originated on the ''Radio/{{Blondie}}'' radio series in the '40s.
* ''America's Top 40''
** "Keep your feet on the ground, but keep reaching for the stars!"[[labelnote:Explanation]]This was Creator/CaseyKasem's signoff for the show. [[/labelnote]]
* ''Franchise/TheLoneRanger'': "What do you mean ''we'', kemosabe?" [[labelnote:Explanation]] A popular joke, suggesting that Tonto would inevitably [[TheDogBitesBack get sick of taking orders from the Ranger]] and [[EtTuBrute turn against him]] if they were ever surrounded by hostile Indians--leading to the exchange "Looks like we're done for!"/"What do you mean ''we'', kemosabe?". It's used to poke fun at the popular perception of Tonto as the Ranger's put-upon servant, but it's well-known enough that certain jokesters often tack "kemosabe" onto the phrase "What do you mean ''we''?" for humor's sake. Not that the writers of the actually show ''never'' had Tonto and the Ranger fighting Indian baddies, likely to avoid accusations of racism; the implication is that [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere Tonto would have joined them in a heartbeat]] if he had ever met them.[[/labelnote]]
* ''Radio/TheGreatGildersleeve'':
** "Well, now, I wouldn't say ''that''."[[labelnote:Explanation]]The catchphrase of Richard Q. Peavey.[[/labelnote]]
