Hearing the old radio advertisements included along with these shows brings me back to my childhood times in the 1970's. I remember contentedly listening to the old radio programs and how much it helped me to pass the hour or half an hour away with wonder and amusement in a beneficial way Smile So far, I've heard the old 'State Farm' life insurance jingle, and I look forward to re-discovering many more radio advertisements too Smile

Sometimes I like them and sometimes I find them intrusive. The Mounds and Almond Joy ads in most of the Alien Worlds episodes from the late '70s were cute at first, but then they quickly got old.

That said, one of my favorite radio ads from that era is "The Raving," a Roto-Rooter spot that parodied Poe's "The Raven". It ran at the end of CBSRMT in the late '70s and early '80s.

Writer and creator characters like "Ichabod Crane" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" story
Any shows in here such as these?

I love listening to CBSRMT and hearing some of the news broadcasts from back in the day. I was only a little kid, but I remember a lot of the happenings from back then.

When I did the OTR listening assignment in my humanities class this semester, I was surprised that quite a few of the students commented on the commercials, especially the fact that they were intertwined with the shows in a way that made it difficult to tell the ads from the show itself. This was particularly true of the Fibber McGee episode "Pot Roast", which has a couple of commercials using actors from the show in character.

I also remember that from TV in my childhood, particularly Andy Griffith and Don Knotts doing cereal commercials (for Rice Krispies, I think) in character during the Andy Griffith Show. I also remember Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Green Jeans doing the same thing for Colgate toothpaste in character during that show. Somehow I'm thinking the FCC made a rule prohibiting that in the early '70s. Of course now they just do blatant product placements in the shows themselves, even to the point of scripting in dialog about the products.

Update: I was mistaken. The cereal commercials were for Post products, not Kelloggs. Here's a link to one that's actually an Andy Griffith/Gomer Pyle crossover. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mb4eoMpanFE and here's a page that has several more including some he did after his Mayberry days: http://goretro.blogspot.com/2012/07/andy-griffith-commercialsmmmmm-good.html
