SPACE-GRABBING RADIO GAGS Does your town have a shopping news reporter who gets tired of hunting for a new angle to hang her daily chatter on? You can solve her problems for one day at least by lending her "The World's Greatest Detective" to go on her bargain hunt for her. Fact that you are a regular time-buyer on the station should help you sell the idea. Her program can use the slant "Today I sent Inspector Cockrill, The World's Greatest Detective" and star of "Green for Danger," which is now playing at the Theatre, out to shop the town for me. And he's come back with some great values "You may not be able to be the 'World's Greatest Detective' like Inspector Cockrill, star of 'Green For Danger,' but you can be our town's greatest tune detective and win guest tickets to see him at the Theatre." That's your pitch on a radio gag which can plug your film title and Alastair Sim. Idea is to get one of the stores with which you regularly co-operate and which already buys radio time to have its disc jockey play a tune without an¬ nouncing the title. First one or first ten to call in the correct title to the station can win guest tickets to see "Green for Danger." Page Eight
