PROOF THAT RADIO DOESN’T HAVE TO BE DEAD

This is one of my all-time favorite station promos.

If it doesn’t make you smile, that’s okay. Just means it doesn’t fit your taste or sensibility.

But if it does make you smile — or, as I do, respond with awe at its brave creativity — a reminder: The people who did this 40 – 50 years ago didn’t have 1/10 of the production tools available to you today.

All they had was an idea. And a “what if…?” And the desire to find out.

    Brilliant. What an idea — thanks for the laugh, Dan.

    I love old radio production like that! Truly imaginative. Fun!

    Astounding! This sounds like the sort of thing Steve Allen used to do in his radio days. What a hoot. And it’s just as intelligible as the promos I hear on half the SF stations these days…

    Thanks…reminders like this cause me to have some hope for the future of radio.

    At the risk of sounding like I don’t get it…

    …I don’t get it…
