Yep, remember when many of those ads were in magazines and on B&W TV. I remember some that were on the AM radio- before FM radio and TV. The best ad, to me, was the first ads for the Infiniti car. For a solid month, the company ran ads with no car, just a meditation garden or landscape. They got your curiosity up so you would anticipate seeing the car at the dealer.

In my 62 years I can't ever remember seeing any of those ads on my radio.

I reckon that I must be too young because I don't recognise let alone remember any of them.

I do remember some of the products but not one of those commercials ring a bell,,,,, am I loosing it or was I too young at age 62 I won't ask the family they think I lost it way back this will only confirm it.

Mind you I never seen a TV until 1954 and radio or phonograph was the ticket. Really bad sound, but I also was raised on a farm and never seen town much. This is my excuse Yup!
