HI Ho Steve arino

Leo do you realize how few know the greeting “Hi Ho Steve arino”? For all of you not around in the era 1959 to 1965 you probably don’t know about Steve Allen AKA Steve arino.


I hear Leo say this to Steve nearly every week but have no idea what it means or where it came from. Im not American and wasn’t around in 1959 so this is all news to me :joy:


Thisis where it started in 1959 on the Steve Allen show.https://youtu.be/82_Datdlrec

I am the reigning king of anachronistic references, and mighty proud of it!


Steve Allen started the Tonight Show. Remember watching Mr Allen’s last Tonight Show. https://youtu.be/Y2RakIfeYPI

Translation An anachronism is a chronological inconsistency in some arrangement, especially a juxtaposition of persons, events, objects, language terms and customs from different time periods.

Much better definition, from Google:

a·nach·ro·nis·tic /əˌnakrəˈnistik/ adjective

  1. belonging to a period other than that being portrayed.

“‘Titus’ benefits from the effective use of anachronistic elements like cars and loudspeakers”

  • belonging or appropriate to an earlier period, especially so as to seem conspicuously old-fashioned.
