About 25 years ago, I was channel-flipping and came across a game show (can’t remember which one).  One of the contestants was named “Walter.”

Chuck Wollery chatted him up.  Walter said, “I’m Walter Eagan.  I had a hit song, “Magnet and Steel.”

Chuck was confused.

So Walt sang a few lines: “You are the magnet, and I am the steel…”

Chuck had no clue and moved on.



MORAL OF THE STORY:  Fame is fleeting.
