Dumpster Vinyl Volume 14: Produced Commercial Intros from “The Big Sound” series PCI-3R

I think this is the last of the “produced commercial intros”, and this disc differs from the other two in one major respect: the music is much, much longer.  This allowed the radio DJ to play music underneath their announcements for local businesses’ sales.  The first side does have more generic dialogue mentioning sales; the second side is the music on its own.

Here’s more commercial intros that radio DJs could use in front of spots for local businesses. Not much to add here, really, other than some of these “intros” sound more like “outros”. A lot of the music makes me think of old Hanna-Barbera cartoon end credits.

Enjoy!

What we have here is a disc of pre-recorded intros to types of commercials for local businesses.  Here’s how I assume these were used: the radio DJ would play one of these and then personally talk about a local business’s sale or products.  You’ve got introductions for car dealerships, furniture stores, realtors; some generically announce a sale, or admonish the listeners to “bring the whole family”.

Keep in mind I have to listen to these all at once when I digitize them.  In aggregate, these come across like a royalty-free version of Wak’s monologue from the Joe Dante film Explorers (1985).
