Ad Commercials

I am at a loss to write about “Ad Commercials” as I do not know how to begin exactly.

Here goes. I’ll start back as a child in the early 30’s when we listened to the John B. Gambling, WOR, NYC, radio program and he advertised for Educator Crax and how good they were. I couldn’t wait to find out what they were and learned they were like “Ritz Cracker”.

Another early year’s commercials was “Kolynos Toothpaste”, but I have forgotten the jingle. This led on to “Ivory Soap that was 99 and 44/100 percent pure and it floats”. How about “Rinso White gets everything cleaner” and “Chock Full of Nuts that heavenly coffee a millionaire’s money can’t buy”! And “Ho, Ho, Ho, the Jolly Green Giant” – vegetables

I think this is it. – Just one more – “See the USA in your Chevrolet”.
