I remember listening to Ernie way back in WTTM days. His transition to television was really the beginning of his career as a national and world wide personality. My memory is hazy but I seem to remember Ernie being on Philadelphia's WPTZ channel 3 back in the black and white 10 inch TV years. He was a guy with an imagination that allowed him to bring all those funny things he imagined to life and when he brought them to the public, he was absolutely hilarious. My favorite Kovacs figment was "Percy Dovetonsils." As I write this I am smiling ear to ear as I recall those coke bottle glasses and those eyes! He died much too young, and had he lived, he would probably have gone on to a late night show that would put today's funny guys to shame.
