Voices From The Past

The Dick Summer Binder and Binder spots run on the Al Franken show on the
network, so they're not just on WLIB. I guess Binder and Binder buys WLIB
during fringe time, which would explain why the spots are on Maddow's show,
and also buys the Franken show on the network. WKOXKS carries several of
those spots every weekday during the Franken show. I don't think I've heard
them on other shows, however.
