RADIO ADVERTISING - 'Unforgettable'

Well that was the intention, just like the songs themselves. The fact that you will remember many of the commercials on this page proves that it worked! I would like to remind visitors to ignore any incitement to buy tobacco, as an ex-smoker myself, I recommend you keep clear of tobacco products, except perhaps as a bio-based insecticide!

The making of commercials (spots) was an important area of production by all the big jingle producers, and many demonstrate the same imagination and creativity, that are evident in the Station ID section. Some of the more famous commercials, from both sides of the Atlantic are included below. Click any icon below, to hear some of the best adverts ever and enjoy!
