#12. Lucy once impersonated him (Sid Stone) and his voice in the famous I Love Lucy episode, "The Freezer" where she and Ethel hilariously order "2 sides" (of a cow), 700 pounds of beef, and try to get rid of some of it by selling to customers at a meat store.
QUOTES at the bottom: Lucy Ricardo: [speaking in the style of a carnival barker] "Tell ya what I'm gonna do. Any cut you want, seventy-nine cents a pound."

Mini BIO on
"But it was as the announcer on Mr. Berle's ''Texaco Star Theater'' that Mr. Stone perhaps gained his widest recognition. He would saunter on stage, set up his pitchman's sample case, and say, ''Tell ya what I'm gonna do!''

Never heard of Sid Stone? I’ve heard of Ernie Kovacs and Mort Sahl. I’ve seen Ernie Kovacs on the old 50’s game show What’s My Line as a panel contestant. He had a pretty hot wife too. 😛

That would be the late Edie Adams, the singer, who died ery recently.

I missed #10 and #12
Most of them I could hear in my head. But 10 didn't bring Bob Hope to mind. And 12 sounded familiar, but I don't think I ever heard Sid Stone.
