I found this great clip on YouTube that I really think you might enjoy as a look at the past and how advertising could make us believe all that great scientific evidence ---through double talk---about the healthy attributes of tobacco. I also, then, was a believer.
A little nostalgia with Perry Como, Hank Snow (best part of the program) and the main reason for this the commercials.
We had the country, Perry Como, but most important how advertising insinuated itself--and still does---into our minds. I hope your Chesterfields gave all the ads promised---other than emphysema. Well, they did not promise that anyway. Truth in advertising.
Might I know urge you to scoot over to THE ALMOST DAILY ROOSTER by clicking on the right side of the page and we can talk of other things not related to the radio program(s).
