_To Catch a Mouse, Make a Noise Like a Cheese_ was indeed the title, by
Lou Kornfeld, president of Radio Shack and originator of the "Flyer-Side
Chat" column that was a regular feature in Radio Shack retail flyers for
so many years. He was managing one of the (8 or 9) original Radio Shack
stores in Boston when Charles Tandy bought the company in about 1964 (and
proceeded to expand the chain by three orders of magnitude). I forget if
the book was released before or after he retired.
