Love Them, Hate Them – Radio Commercials Celebrate 90th Anniversary (Audio)
KFFM runs commercials and that is the way that I get paid monthly from the radio station. It's time to celebrate the anniversary of the radio commercial.
On August 28, 1922 broadcasters realized that radio could earn profits from the sale of advertising time.
WEAF in New York ran a commercial for the Queensboro Realty Corporation of Jackson Heights.
The rate was $100 for 10 minutes.
I think our commercial rates are actually better these days.
I found some great old radio commercials for you to listen to on You Tube ...enjoy that top speed of 35 mph and reminisce about those classic radio commercials.
