    The “diner” is Jackson Weaver and the “chef” is Frank Harden of DC’s longtime top-rated WMAL-AM morning radio team of “Harden & Weaver”. (Their program debuted in 1960.)

    My good sir, I ordered a lobster, not a crawfish!

  • Connie

    I’ll need a nice, crisp white wine from the Loire Valley to go with this fine fellow!

    “Excuse me but no, I would prefer you did not butter him up for me, chef. I brought my pet lobster in this aquarium here just to show you what a real lobster looks like.”

  • David

    The lobster looks fine but can you refill my wine, i’m getting a little low.

  • R.T. Hubbard

    Is that Jackson Weaver of Harden and Weaver fame, long time radio personalities in the D.C. area?

    • Mr DC Memories

      You are correct on 2 counts. The diner is Jackson Weaver. The waiter is Frank Harden. You might enjoy watching an interview with Frank Harden that covers his career:
